WWII US ARMY PARACHUTE LAMP

Lamp fixed to Parachute equipment to aid location in water.

Your comments:

  • This type of lamp (with different colour caps) was attached to equipment containers ('Identification Ariel delivery containers' as read on the label) This to aid the discovery of these containers when they were dropped during the night. The colour gave some indication of the contents of the container.
