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.

Bob,

That is a beautiful tunic. How about some closeups? :cheers:

Snoopy,

I have never seen one of those devices before! Any information on the brightness of the flare?

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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
