WW1 BRITISH 1917 DATED TRENCH LANTERN
A very nice condition British trench lantern, that is not a relic pick up or barn stored item.
The overall condition is well above average for such an item with only basic surface rust pitting to the metal body.
The glass is possibly replaced and as is common the oil burner has long been discarded in favour of candle use.
Opening panel is in good free working order as is the handle.
To the flat chimney lid are the maker detail and date of manufacture / issue, 1917.
A nice item to show in a display !
This is a SOLD Item.
