WW1 British Trench Lantern, 1915 Dated.
Made by the firm Hinks & Sons and dated 1915 this lantern appears to have never been used. All the glass is complete without damage and no wax residue can be found inside. The metal carry box is complete and dated only damage being the leather carry strap. The lantern is marked with a broad arrow and letter''U'', perhaps issued to a South African unit.
