Close up and general view of an unknown type of lamp, believed to be a commercial model. In this picture it is seen fitted in an early Golden Arrow Mk.II receiver trailer. It was also used in other vehicles.
Miscellaneous post-war lamps.
Several versions and variations of fixed mounted ceiling and wall mounted lamps have been encountered. These lamps were not specifically wireless items and normally part of a vehicle installation kit.
