    Hello all,

    This is my 242, I,m new here, I know the globe is not the right one.
    I've had it since the late 70, I inherited from the original owner. I would
    like to use it. any help would be great. Is there some instructions to taking
    it apart. like to keep original as possible. please e-mail or pm thanks

    Hi @socal242
    Welcome from Queensland Australia.
    Your lantern is the very early 242 Junior. It looks to be in very good condition.

    Please find attached the 242 Junior instruction manual.

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers
    Pete

    Your 242 Junior is in very good condition.
    It’s a very good example to have in your collection.
    Cheers
