HMS Hermes (R12) Short Domed White Lamp

An important, exclusive light fitting from one of the most famous, longest serving Warships in the World, HMS Hermes (R12), reclaimed at the ship breakers and refurbished for a new life ashore.

These lights were installed during Her completion by Vickers-Armstrong in the late 1950’s and are still going strong after 63 years of glorious service to the Royal Navy and in later years the Indian Navy, surviving the Falklands War as Flagship, and all those Naval exercises, tours and countless nautical miles.

We removed these lights from spaces all over the ship; from the passage-ways, engineering & engine rooms, flight deck, cabins, messes and galleys, even the gym.

Made by famous company ‘Playmit’, lighting suppliers to the Royal Navy during and since WW2, in cast aluminium rather than bronze and brass which was scarce and prohibitively costly immediately following WW2.

Painstakingly and professionally reclaimed and refurbished, with original electrical fitting replaced and upgraded to new CE certified lamp-holder.

Along with the lamp you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity to accompany your investment. Keep that safe as the value of this item will only go up in time.

These items are exclusive to Trinity Marine, as we were the only company that was allowed onboard to salvage significant quantities of artefacts from the Hermes in the same way as we were with other RN carriers we were appointed to, such as; HMS Ark Royal and HMS Vengeance, as well as other ships of the Royal Navy, HMS Cornwall, Plymouth, LLandaff, Fearless to name just a few.

Wired with inline switch, fabric flex and plug.

Takes a standard bayonet bulb.
