French Signal Lantern

French Army Surplus



This French army signal lantern was made in 1981, making it great for reenactments or adding ambiance to a military themed setting. Although this lantern is more then just a prop, as it is fully functional (battery not included) and comes with a variety of parts. A spare bulb resides inside, as well as the most prominent feature of this lantern, 3 coloured filters. 

The red, green and yellow filters would have been used for signalling French soldiers during combat, allowing for ground troops to plan tactics. You're not limited to this use though, this lantern can be used in many ways that are only limited to your imagination.
