    These are some of my US 220/228 individual era represented examples, general information is given, there is a number of component variant changes not mentioned within this presentation.

    only 3 confirmed BX identified lanterns date stamped 3/10 October 1943, have been found with printed box and dated 10/43 220 BX designated instructions.
    Previously found printed instructions dated 5/43 and later 9/44 are 220B designated.
    This fits with the article written by Sheldon Coleman.

    Hi Larry
    An excellent reference and presentation, thank you for sharing.
    I have a L228 Slant as follows, it’s one of my favourites, I do like the Slants.
