this lamp is battery powered (BA-200)
has a 2" square light/lens, one on each side
pointing oppist directions,
whith a fold down shade over each lens.
and a pole clamp on the side.
my guess,- to mark beach lanes for the landing craft.
or minefield lanes ect.
anybody know for sure?
well if you dont have one in your collection.
do you want mine?
theres a second little compartment in the battery box,
that i think might have held colored lensesses.
but if so there missing now.
the light works good. but your going to have to by your own battery. scince my signal corps lantern takes the same battery.
