What type of vehicle could this light be from

Article about: I think the bulldozer or an APC would be good candidates. I have found quite a few parts from the British Bren gun Carrier and bulldozer tracks on the Eastern Front. Well done Ade Regards, L

    It is a US Blackout driving light.

    These were fitted to almost all US vehicle types.

    So it was off a Lend Lease vehicle most likely used by the Red Army.

    Cheers, Ade.

    My pleasure.

    I said this the other day, unless I transmit a bit of what I have picked up alone the way, what is the point.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Not many US vehicles had blackout lights attached directly to their headlights.
    It should be fairly easy to ID.

    My WWII vehicle reference manual shows only tanks, armored cars and
    halftracks as likely suspects. Trucks and utility vehicles have separate
    housings - usually attached to the fenders.........
