Hi Dave I have acquired a fully chromed Protector type 6RS dated 1958 can you tell me anything about these chrome lamps , who would order one / use one and how many are there?

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark,
The 6RS lamps were specific to the Durham Coal Fields. It is a Deputies Re-lighter Lamp, usually chromed lamps were supplied to Mine Managers.
We do not have records of where or how many were supplied, but a managers lamp would be far less common.
Regards David
