Rear Axle Nut Size?

I'm in the process of changing the rear tire and find I don't have any wrench to fit the rear axle nut. Can't find the info in either manuals I have. Looks to me to be about 1 1/8" Imperial wise. Anyone know what size mm of wrench I need to look for before I go looking for a pipe wrench?

For further reference its a 27mm or you can do what most of us do and use a large crescent wrench.

Additional information about sizes and torque requirements can be found under the postings about lubricating the rear splines
