Take a look inside our Type 6 Deputies Relighter Lamp. This flame safety lamp was in production until the 1980’s. It was gradually replaced by our Garforth GR6S lamp. This miners lamp was the approved method of checking for methane/firedamp in all UK coal mines from Nationalisation in 1947

Our torch relay lamps left Dubai on Monday enroute to Kabul and on to Toronto. Can’t wait to see Prince Harry carrying a Protector Lamp.
Good luck to all taking part and the team from Alem.
