Equipment for the larger FLAK search light. These coal rods was used instead of light bulbs, in the larger search lights. Theys where used in pairs. When electrical current was turned on, a small lightning was created between the rods. This produced a very intense light.

Thanks Paul,

The Flakregiment Trumpet Banner has the earlier heavy style silver bullion fringing and has survived the years quite well. Here is a shot of the reverse.

Thanks Paul. :)

Here is writing on the back.

This photo is from an album showing II/Flak Rgt.11 (mot) in action in Poland and the Ukraine.

Lots of action, medals, vehicles, uniforms, graves, weapons photos. One of the best albums in my collection.

Cheers,

Larry
