    Gave her a bit of a spruce up, fitted some new washers, mantle and globe and away she went. Think I’ll give her a name - any suggestions?

    “A gift to Andrew “ should do.
    A fine lamp by the way.

    That's awesome. Nothing like enjoying the restored lantern burning after many years sidelined.

    That’s looking absolutely charming Jean, well done John. As for a name, Homer perhaps?

    @Jean J You could be right, Jean, too many steps I'd probably break my neck over my own feet!

    Andrew, Derek, Homer - too male sounding.
    Gloria - like it Alex but couldn’t get Gloria in Excelsis out of my head, managed to finish it with ‘Gloria’s in the pig hoose”. Works quite well!
    Lampie mc lamp face - would have to be converted to more formal ‘Lady Davina of Aberdeen’.
    Tilly/Tilley/Tillie - too boring.
    Thilda - that’s just too thilly Tive.
    Thanks for all your efforts but have rejected them all in favour of Meldrum Meg in honour of my Mam who was known as Meg by family and friends and lived in Oldmeldrum, usually shortened to Meldrum. Meldrum Meg was a steam train that ran between Oldmeldrum and Inverurie until axed by that B....r Beeching. Hope you all approve.

    You’ve got me there James, it’s small and shapely, unlike myself.

    She's looking good Jean.... and as for a name, what do you think about Flo? Short for Florence (as in Nightingale and flow as in fuel?

    Such a lovely dinky wee lantern...Can't believe it's only 10" wide??? :-)

    Do these use the same burner and vapouriser as the PL lanterns ? I had a look in the library and it seemed to suggest that they were different? (different listing numbers?)

    ..200- burner complete- PL 53..
    ..203- burner complete- IL 33..

    ??

    p.s. it was a leaflet that Tony had posted..on page two of the Tilley instuction section

    In a word, yes.

    As far as I know, the reason the burners have different part numbers is the word "complete". The complete IL 33 burner consisted of a standard burner fitted into a short flue which was basically a 449 hood - as found on e.g. AL9 trackwork lamp, EX100 and Australian Kayen AP2 but without the curved cowl on top.
