    Default 60cm Search light reflector in it's transit box from Jersey Channel Islands.

    Here we have a "spare" 60cm searchlight reflector in it's transit box. The dish has never been fitted to a searchlight and the data plate is blank where the number of the searchlight would be stamped. I picked up this piece a number of years ago here in Jersey at a local auction. Today we would be very lucky to see such things come to light...ha ha. Most of this sort of kit has been discovered long ago. This dish must have cost a small fortune to produce during the war luckily I did not have to pay too much for it.

    I am always looking for soldbuch and wehrpass as well as photo albums from German soldiers who were stationed in the Channel Islands (Kanalinseln), Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm during the German Occupation.

    All the best from Jersey.

    Hey Damien, would like to ask you if you'd be willing to part with it. I'm currently restoring a German 60cm searchlight and the reflector is broken. cannot find anyone to remake me one.
    regards,
    Stephen

    Hi Tom,
    There are only a couple of 60cm searchlights left here from the Occupation. One is in the Islands museum and has been heavily restored due to being totally rotten before it was slavaged and the other is in a poorish state as well. I picked up the searchlight dish and box from an auction here years and years ago.
