Swiss Military Field Lighting Kit
When you open this very durable wooden treasure chest you are greeted with some of the finest lighting equipment ever produced. Included in this rare kit are two Geniol lanterns, two lantern heat shields, fuel funnel, spare lantern glass, spare lantern parts and tools, instruction booklet, spare mantels, and two very special mica glass folding candle lanterns. The antique folding candle lanterns are the crown jewel of this kit. They first began service with the Swiss Military in the 1920’s. The ingenious time tested design of these lanterns (photo #3) is remarkable. Made from stainless steel and rare mica glass, when properly assembled the folding lantern is virtually windproof. This kit would be amazing for a personal collection, emergency prep groups, scouting groups, and more. The classic Geniol lanterns are made by Petromax in Germany who has been making lanterns for over 100 years. Wooden chest measures approximately 23 ¾’’ x 16’’ x 17’’. This is a once in a lifetime military surplus find. These kits appear to be from the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Limited Quantities. Unused condition, good condition. Genuine European Military Surplus.
