    Default Lamp Aiming MG Mk III - what bulbs?

    I recently picked up this lamp aiming unit and I'd like to test it but I'm missing the bulb.

    Does anyone know what bulb it would have taken and where I might find a replacement for it?

    And while I'm asking, it is also missing the 30ft of fishing braid and winder. Any ideas on where I might source that from?

    Thanks in advance, Mike.

    Best bet for the line and handle as they are very specific is to trawl dealer sites that handle MGs and accessories.
    As for the bulb I am pretty sure that a standard (if obsolescent) 3.5v screw cap torch bulb as used in the old NATO right angle torch or old style bicycle lamps will do the job;

    I'll give you a nod if I see the other bits.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Regards
