    Default Signal Lamp - Wehrmacht or Swiss

    Hi Everyone,
    Picked up this signal lamp at Saturday's flea-market, thinking it was a Wehrmacht lamp. Looking at it now, I'm unsure, tried to find maker's mark or any identification stampings - nothing - usually Wehrmacht equipment was marked. Still think its from the WW2 era, could it be a Swiss Army Signal Lamp?. Any information appreciated.
    Regards

    pretty sure Daimon is a WWII German signal lamp maker. The experts will pick up on this soon so you will get the correct info. John.

    Yes. German made. A textbook example. Some have a paper battery lable inside.

    Here i go again, reviving aold posts, this one from Anno domini 2010..

    The swiss ones look quite alike i form and colour, but have a cover that can be flipped over the thick & round glass - lense (??) to hide the light. They dont have those "light colour changing-switches".
    And most of all, they are marked with a BIG Swiss Cross, that is relieve-stamped into the front steel... There can be no confusion.

    Some are marked with a small "Crossbow", which stands for MADE IN SWITZERLAND... refering to Wilhelm Tell, the swiss National Hero, that killed the Habsburg-tyrant Gesller in 1290..

    I shall post the two swiss ones that i have, for future reference..

    Hello Alec,
    it would be useful to look at other details, but your example seems to be a German Army of WW2 period.
    If can help answer to your questions I will show you some pictures for comparison.

    regards
    Roberto
