This lantern lost its bowl years ago and the engineer has simply re-lamped it without fitting a new bowl. Since it's a hot, dry area there is little rainfall to affect operation.

This is one of the great problem with British SOX lanterns: That the lamp located outside the lantern body, and only the bowl protects it. In European HID lanterns like the AEG Koffer lanterns, the optical unit provides sufficient protection for the lamp from rain, winds and other weather conditions, so it won't damaged even if the bowl is missing. There are lot of AEG Koffer 150 and 100 lanterns here in Kiryat Ata, and their lamps survives their rated life or even more than that.
The only case here in Kiryat Ata I've seen, where a lamp damaged in a lantern without its cover, is here, where an Osram NAV(SON)-E 150W China lamp being smashed , probably by vandals.
