Hi J Saunders and welcome to LEC .
As far as i know i think they are the same ( though someone else may something otherwise)

All the best and let us know how you get on .

As above - they are the same part...... but swapping them isn't totally straightforward.

The master cylinder is removed from the engine bay side, but the servo comes out from the inside of the car, and requires quite a few other parts to be moved first. (Centre console, Steering column, fascia, instrument panel and some wiring - then it comes out with the pedal box (having undone the clutch/throttle cables).

Not a difficult job (apart from getting backache reaching into the footwell), but not as straightforward as other vehicles where it simply unbolts at the front.

It's all well documented in the workshop manual (Section JE8, from p15) with good diagrams.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Dave just beat me to it. If you check the parts manual, there is only one part no. for the RHD BMC and only one for the RHD servo.
