Its probably not uncommon to find US Military surplus in many different countries, we currently have something like 900 military bases around the world. What is odd however, is the fact that the US Military was still using 400w clear mercs for some lighting installation in 2007, and the fact that they bought these cheap EiKO lamps that barely last a year. Clear mercury is really only popular here in cheap residential-grade fixtures, however in public-owned and utility-owned installations, its always DX coated lamps. The US Military also uses LOTS of GE products, so its also surprising these aren't GE.

Clear lamps were used for utility-owned street/area lighting here through the mid-2000s.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.
