Axle identification

Hi Guys
I have a bent bottom bracket axle from a 90's Raleigh. It's a square taper. On it says WKK 3S P-10 and it's 125mm wide (not including the threaded ends that take nuts).
I cannot identify it online for replacement. Can anyone help?
Thanks

3S is what you need to know.

Thanks. Does the 3S indicate the correct length as well? And what about caged bearings - are they identified by the 3S as well?
Appreciate the help.

This table shows the spindle designations.

The ball bearings are standard. Some suggest you get rid of the cages and add two more balls.

Personally if the cups (BB) are not the Raleigh proprietary threading, which it shouldn't be, I'd throw in an equivalent Shimano UN-55 cartridge unit and be done with it. Sheldon's stuff should show the Shimano cartridge equivalent. If you have to replace a spindle or cup the cartridge is the only way to really go
