My father served on the USS Monterey, an aircraft carrier, in WWII and had one of these lanterns when I was a small boy. I've looked for one for years... Anyone want to sell on that is in good shape?

I have one of these with a socket on the bottom. It looks like I could put a bayonet style bulb in the socket.

I have two of them rebuilt for your mililtary living history one has a stud plate for locking on the wall and the other drops into a barcket.Radio shack has switches and battiery packs 3-6 volts.The old 6 volt lights have switches with wires on them ,pull the PR bulb holders out of reflectors.The old lanterns have metal reflectors undo the bulb holders and then put the PRs in place with epoxey.The 6volt x2 battiery works in them that do not have the stud plate in them.(padding foam) I repaint them NAVY B GERY from the color from the underside of the top of the older one.

Just finished cleaning up the the one that I found in my grandmothers cellar. I tried the dual six volt battery method that Tim mentioned and what do ya know! It works like a charm! Anyways I am wondering if anyone out there has an idea how I could come across the solenoid plug that is supposed to go in the bottom or maybe some way of improvising one...

I have this in metal grey. It's marked Delta Elect Co. Marion Indiana Made in USA. T screws on top are much longer. The # on the handle is the same. I see no model # and the # 5311-L is on yhe left side.Do not see the 9-S anyplace. On he back is a plate with 4 rivets and a tie (?)plate. Think It's the same ?

My dad had two of these when I was growing up. Just p/u the thing from his basement. I am shocked the batteries didn't explode and make a mess after all these decades. This one is in Grey and is a J-1 model with 9-S-5311-L on the top cover. It also has the number 5293-L-5 on the handel.

I have one of these I got from a flea mkt. I wired two 6v. batterys together and used a 12v. bulb for a car dome light...works great and the batterys last quite a while too.

I have just cleaned up one of these up, better shape then the one in the photo, with the old Civil Defense sticker. It came from on Civil Defense truck circa - 1950's. Plan to place it in a local county law enforcement museum.

I have one of these - but the model number is 9-S-5293, type K-10A
I am not sure if I am interested in selling it, but would like to know where I could find drycells to power it.
It appears to be complete. It came from my Dad's basement.
