 Beinf you are at 230 volts things will be a bit different than with
117

The switch illuminators ARE available in the UK.  Just wired across
the swich contacts. Or across the strappers if it's two way.  I have
several in my house, they are just a  flat perspex plate, fit under
any switch.

Neon bulbs are constant voltage devices.  They take about 60-90 volts to
'fire' the gas.  They *always* have a resistor in series with them to limit
the current.  For your NE2 bulb, it 'fires' at 70 V and maintains about 60
V.  It has a current limiting resistor embedded in it to limit the current
to the rated 0.3 mA.  At 120V, that 0.3 mA is only 0.036 Watt

At 0.3 mA, you probably never will 'feel it'.
