The bulb for these lanterns is 1651 or 1651IF (inside frosted). I've had good luck finding these at True Value stores. You may have to special order them, but they only cost $2-3 or so. The battery is #918 (alkaline) and Duracell and Eveready both make them. The battery is held on by its 2 screw terminals.

I have a copper radar lamp that looks just like this. Is the copper lamp worth more than the chrome lamp? I would be willing to sell mine. Thanks!
