can anyone help me and provide a NSN for a Standard TS F8W/33 light bulb. It has come out of one of our lead lamps but we cannot get a number from anywhere, I recall that it looks similar to the light tubes we used onboard.

it is 12 inches long, has the 2 prongs at both ends and is a 8 watt rated tube.

You can get them in B&Q and most caravan or boaty shops.

As for NSN your guess is probably better than mine

In that case perhaps the only option it to iompress some femail JD with your 12 inches and persuade her to find the number for you. (back in the old days the number used to be stamoed on everything so that Dockyard Plod cound identify it as pussers as you tried to smuggle it out the gate.

Doesn't look like anyone can shed any light on this, maybe a bright spark will be along later to illuminate the path for you.

If not use a DC spot, you can't hold a candle to them.

(that's enough light banter for now)
