I'd have a look at some period magazine articles. I think you have to accept that components like this were sometimes not fitted very neatly at the factory and originally looked like a bit of an afterthought.

Hi

Why not post a photo of your brake light switch and we can work from there?

Regards Mick

I've googled '1954 Ariel red hunter' and you can see several modern shots of bikes and their brake light wires - unfortunately, all the period shots I can find are from the wrong side...
