This is a
signal lamp that was used in the Kriegsmarine.
|I got this lamp by an older
man I knew. He had during the war a car repair shop here
He received many car repair jobs from the German army in Larvik. In January 1945 some German soldiers
knocked at his door one evening. They brought this morse lamp and a radio that they wanted to sell.
He had no interest in these products, but he could not say no to this "offer".
The sheriff had heard that he had bought a radio from the Germans.
He arrived at his door and confiscated the radio.
It turned out later that he was a radio amateur.
