Miners Battery – Cap Lamp.
This model “Exide Triclad” Type F-1. lamp has a plastic body and a chrome top.
The unit was made with no fixed belt hoops though a wire was produced to wrap around the whole battery (as seen left) which acted as a hoop to hold the battery to the belt. Used in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Made by Messrs J. Youle & Co Limited.
This cap lamp had a light switch type clicker to turn the light on and off (as seen right) rather than the more common twist switch as seen in later type lamps.
Made from plastic, chrome, and glass.
