Local Thorn Beta 2s

 Although not as popular as the smaller Beta 5, the Beta 2 still finds a use in this area. The lantern was launched in the early 1980s (although the name had been used for a fluorescent lantern some years before); with a design heavily modelled on the 5. Examples from this period still exist in fairly large numbers today. When the 5 was 'modernised' in the early 1990s, the 2 again followed suit - though a slimline bowl was never brought out.
