    The Lucas MAXLITE

    Among the things that I inherited from my father were several versions of the UKicon wartime headlamp mask, for air raid black-out purposes. Looking through the various designs the example pictured below stood out among all the others in that it only has one slit for letting any light out from the vehicle's headlamp, yet, comically, the makers thought it appropriate to label it "MAXLITE". I think that it would have been better and more honest to describe it as "MINLITE". All of the other headlamp masks that I own have more than one slot for letting light out.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.
