WW11 Air Ministry Navigators Lamp Herbert & Terry Model 5c/1079. c1930-40.

These navigator lamps were used in aircraft like the Wellington bomber and Varsity trainer but the most widespread use was the Lancaster bomber. A rare item with a lovely Patina Condition. The arms have lost almost all of the paintwork back to the aluminium but there are still traces of paintwork showing its originality.

These lamps were originally 12 or 24 volts depending on which aircraft was used this lamp has now been rewired using a 240v-12v transformer using period cotton flex connected to the original rheostat switch which is in full working order an LED bulb is fitted which will run cooler and give a brighter light. Mounted on a composite base for an “Industrial Vintage look.” Note; The lamp holder and the rheostat/switch have the correct 5c/1079 Air Ministry markings. Specification. The fibre joints, nuts and the Herbert & Terry springs are original. The “D” block, Tufnell wheel & spring washer are also correct, the “AM” and crown markings can be seen stamped on the fork behind the rheostat which also has the 5c marking. The yoke is original, the lamp shade is a reproduction made to the exact pattern by Retro 3a who specialise in these air ministry lamps.

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.
