    Okay it turned up today and while the finish is supurb,it was spoilt by the fact the washers on font are lead sheet and you wouldn't expect to use repair kit with better washers to fix it as new. Alsoo what I believe is swarf in tube that goes over jet.

    Mine came via dealer from pelam as the box has their details and accessory brochure, my experience is best covered www.petromax.org.uk.

    My advice is an original German Army one as the current lanterns are best described as CRAP out the box.

    Pelam are in denial and the Germans think that pelam claiming to be the manufacturer bear no responsibility for product quality control!

    I thing CRAP would be an understatement. Also dangerous should be in there.

    These clones are just HORRIBLE! I have to old original Aidas and they do a great job. I think a representative of the BriteLyt company is trolling in here, so be leery of anyone singing the BriteLyt praises.

    The old German pieces are excellent. And a lot of the Middle Eastern stuff I've seen over the years is pretty good. But BriteLyt, just awful. This manufacturer has less of a love for building great lanterns. And more of a love for luring suckers to line his pockets with greenbacks.
