Help identifying chain plate bolts

I need help identifying what type of bolts these are which are used on to fasten the chain plates on my Prout.

The head is much larger than a normal pan head. These are 10mm bolts and the head is about 8mm thick.

Also where are these available. Temporarily I just used hex head bolts, but these are more pleasing to the eye.

Looks like a standard 10mm stainless pan head bolt sold in most UK Chandlery.
