     Did the U.S. Navy use Coleman lanterns
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41, 
10/25, and 8/07

The biggest lie I tell myself is
”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

Probably not aboard ship, but the Seabees, Corpsmen with the USMC, Naval gunfire spotters, etc certainly did.  Good question.

I have a 237B that’s a kerosene lantern from WW11. I have paperwork with it that this was at a Navy Base in New York.

That would be neat to see.
I’m assuming mine was surplus sold to civilians. Actually came with a letter from Coleman responding to the lady owner’s complaint about operation. The box and all instructions were present. Thinking your documentation would be of interest to many.
Thank you!

I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

I agree with Bill's comment above. Shore installations and units working ashore would have used them. On board ship, no way a device with an open flame would be allowed. Battle lanterns were battery/electric. There are too many possibilities of an explosive atmosphere aboard ship for a portable open flame.

Notice where it specifies "clean gasoline free from anti-knock compounds" aka white gas.

Being a Navy Submariner myself I do remember seeing Mil Spec and some 220's in the off crew office and around some submarine bases But never on board. I don't know if they were privately owned or not.

     Does anybody know if they specifically know if the navy used them in ww2. Also @fuel brained man, you are braver than me. Submarines suck.

First of all @fuel brained what happens if you stand in front of an intake? Second, submarines are cramped, smelly, and dirty, or atleast I imagine it being dirty and smelly.
