    Here is my Coleman Empire lantern, model number 237, it was made in Canada in February 1947.

    It's rated at 500cp., but this one has never been that bright.

    Petrol or Paraffin can be used, but I only use the latter, Jeff.

    Update, after fitting an Anchor 500 cp., mantle which burns off closer to the vapouriser and keeps it hotter, this lantern now works well, Jeff.

    Here is a photo of it lit and it's not bad for a 67 year old, Jeff.

    I like the BIG burning EMPIRE'S. That's nice.

    It is interesting that the Coleman 237A from the latter 1960's was still referred to as 237A Empire in Coleman Canada's instruction leaflet. The word Empire is not stamped on the collar though.

    Google Translate: very nice beautiful thing

    Welcome, Lugina! You could try Google Translate from your language to English; it seems to do quite a good job!
