    This is a very cool lantern, you can view it in the lantern gallery, my other lanterns and lamps are a bit jelly of this one. 2C54B68A-E3B4-4180-BD80-E2F9390C567D.jpeg B8D6861A-9B75-434B-BECF-3A4470706B43.jpeg 000CA767-9F21-45DB-96C4-1B41E9274E19.jpeg

    I don’t think we need to have anything in that room that might reflect Darryl having a shower…

    It’s obvious you’ve led a sheltered life, David Shouksmith. The 20 litre drum is to put the beer bottles in!

    @bp4willi , hi there, I’m lead to believe Tilley were commissioned to make them for the Dutch water department, no sure on the real history,
    Colour is / call duck egg blue
    The hood burner, reflectors are SDR
    The tank is x246 but where the legs of frame screw internal into the tank,
    It has a wing nut pump , the plunger bit is plastic, it has a pressure pip. It also has a half round reflector in the globe it is removable
