This turned up on eBay and I picked it up at first asking price, it is in pristine condition and would say it has never been used. The next photos will pick out salient points and show it to its full. My first thoughts would be that James or Colin maybe able to throw light on this. On the 'cap' is; GEC Made in England 26v - 500w 28v - 280w 10B/91 995-9703 (broad arrow) E1. Following pictures to follow.

One of these was put up by linear-sli/h and it is an aircraft landing lamp. Colin's info also, found this by putting lamp number on Google.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
