Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. We have never had an example in this configuration before. It measures about 8" across, and is made of steel in circular form that was intended to be tied or clamped around regular Automobile Head Lamps during the WW2 "BLITZ" AIR RAID blackouts.

This example blots out all light save for a sliver under a hooded over hang, on which the trade label of: LUCAS / MAXLITE is affixed. The small slit window has a reinforced glass lens, intended to help spread the light more effectively. These hood over the slit window ensured that minimal light was visible from above, a necessity during a night Air Raid, when any light source could become a target. While the light produced was small, it was still enough for slow speed navigation during the blackouts.

Nevertheless another great accessory Set from London's WW2 BLITZ. Ready to display.
