Damaged Thorn Civic 1

This lantern came from the same area as my other example and was also removed as a result of vandalism. However, it was damaged to an even greater extent - the gear section has actually broken away from the main body of the lantern.

It appears that the vandals swung on the front part of the lantern - the added leverage causing it to break away from the rear section. The bowl clips are both missing.

The bowl and reflector are also damaged - suggesting that heavy objects were thrown at the lantern. Further damage has been imposed on the lantern by me - I attempted to change the lampholder for an ES one, in order that the lantern could be used to test lamps however the fixing holes on the lampholder did not match up with the ones on the support plate. Also, I used the bottom corner of the reflector to test the sharpness of a holesaw - as you can see, I didn't get far!
