Somewhat interesting that thieves now know that miner's safety lamps are worth stealing!
All of us who have any, better just take suitable precautions!

I hope the rightful owner is quickly reunited with their lamp.

Maybe worth asking the police to keep an eye open as there's still an entire coal industry missing..... Confused

Perhaps the guy that nicked it was a collector. After all its one of the more desirable ones to have if you collect lamps. Smile IP: 213.205.194.143
