    Here is a Vapalux M320 new-in-box that came to me via Australia. It was unused equipment sold off after withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    I know that this is a rather late production-run of this lantern, but I thought would provide some detailed photos.

    It will remain unlighted.

    A nice find Tony,

    I've had a few of these in silver with the broad arrow stamped underneath on the base and for some reason because they weren't green i always thought they hadn't been issued and were maybe stamped at the factory, interesting if they were from Afghanistan.

    I got mine from Townsville, Queensland, Australia. The seller said ex-Afghanistan.

    Townsville has a strong military connection, so it's entirely possible.

    Cheers
