This is a virtually complete Outfit, as used by the Signal Regiment, during, and just after the 2nd WW. It consists of a main metal box, divided into 2 compartments. One, contains the actual lamp , with cable. The other, contains spares, including an original spare lamp, still in it’s wrapping. The lids are in 2 parts. one of which, when opened, reveals a key Morse Board, with instructions, and attachments for the Lamp Cable. The other lid has general instructions, and among the accessories, are original instruction/description leaflets, and a Morse Code Leaflet. There is also a ground Spike outfit, for simple mounting the lamp, when the Tripod was not available. However, this outfit does have an original wooden Tripod, with brass mounts, and correct inscription. This has the standard length of 39 inches. The lids of the case, are covered by webbing, and there is a webbing shoulder sling. Please note that this outfit would have been part of a trio including a Heliograph, a Signal Regiment Spotting Telescope, both on Tripods. Both of these are available on my listings on fleaglass.

I have been interested in scientific instruments since my grammar school days in the 1950s then university at Guys Hospital, London, where I qualified in 1961, and then working as a Dental Surgeon, until retirement from that profession, in 2004.. My antiques business was set up 45 years ago, having followed in the footsteps of my father. Throughout this time I have dealt in scientific instruments, mainly of a military connection. This includes military instruments, microscopes, compasses, Nauticalia, Telescopes, large and small, Binoculars, especially of the German and British Naval forces of the 2nd WW, general optical items and even writing cases.
I attend the Science Fair in,London, and other Antique Fairs, especially the IACF Fairs, at Ardingly, West Sussex, The "Military Odyssey" at Detling, Kent, and occasionaly,the Bisley Fairs, and Birmingham, at the NMM.
