    @moreotherstuff so yours is a multi-section (term?) one. Do mine look like multiple 1-section lanterns or something more like yours?

    From your photos, I'm guessing you have bits and pieces that would assemble into something larger.

    Entirely possible pieces are missing. Will try to assemble.

    It may be that these are bits and pieces salvaged from something larger. How creative are you?

    someone went to great lengths to disassemble what looks like a 1970's era lamp....?????

    Sadly, it's the kind of thing I'd do.

    @moreotherstuff in yours how many light sockets are there? Each of mine has a socket so maybe these are individual lanterns?

    I don't have one. That's a picture I found online.

    I think you want a bayonet base light bulb. They're out there. You can find some on Amazon, but taking one of the sockets to a lighting store is probably the easiest.

    Yes, although the socket is male and so are the bulb connectors in the photos. So for compatibility I would need either an adapter of some sort or a bulb with female connectors, right?

    Didn't get to visit the store yesterday, planning to do it over the weekend

    @Ownedbybear does it have the same type of bayonet socket? Do you have a bulb for it?

    Mine is just a baby lantern, rather than any electrical fittings.

    Your bayonet fittings are British. They were also used in many of our colonies. I'll bet your lamps came from Hong Kong. You've also got black and red two core cable, by the look of it, which is old style British.
