    Default U-boot red lights

    Hi guys,
    I have these u-boot red lights.
    The guy I got them from says, his father Bering a professional diver got them from a sunken u-boot in The Baltic Sea.
    I would VERY much appreciate any info or pictures any of you may be able to provide on these, since I have had no luck myself so far :-/

    Mfg
    Marc

    They look brand new!!
    Hard to believe they came off a sunken wreck?

    They dont look brand new in real life. They are made of brass and was brought back some 40 years ago . Mfg Marc

    A couple more pics :-)
    It seems like they were once painted in a very light green/grey shade !

    Ok Marc - I see the corrosion now in the closeup photos.
    Still very good for 30 years under the sea.

    There's something you don't see everyday. Very Nice.

    An example from U-Boat U995, not the same as yours but very similar in design concept as far as connecting to the electricity...Is there any markings at all?

    To be honest - I am not an expert as regards the German WWII U-boot's interior, but I can imagine that different types of internal equipment were in use, depending on U-boot type, year of production, shipyard were the boat was launched etc.
    Look at the 9th (and 7th as well) photo from the link: it could be something like this, however it is not exactly the same.

    Wire protectors suggest that it was placed in communication area, where it could be easily damaged.
