Product Description
The first 60 inch Searchlight was made by General Electric in 1893.

The high intensity carbon-arc searchlight was developed in 1918 by the American inventor, Elmer A Sperry (18601930). It became the standard equipment of the main military forces of the world, and also was widely used commercially.

The value of the searchlight in anti-aircraft defence was discovered when airships and aircraft were first used for night bombing raids over large towns

The searchlights used in WWII were manufactured in the early 1940`s by both the General Electric and Sperry Gyroscope company for the U.S. Military as Anti-Aircraft Searchlight Units. Although there were differences between the two makes, many of the parts were inter-changeable and additional refinements were made each year throughout the war.

During the Second World War, anti-aircraft searchlights were used for:
  • Detection and illumination of enemy aircraft.
  • Enabling day-fighters to be used in the night sky.
  • Forcing enemy bombers into higher altitudes.
  • Blinding and confusing the crew of the enemy aircraft.
  • Acting as beacons for the landing of damaged aircraft.

    Other uses for searchlights included:
  • Extensive use of coastal defence.
  • Use by patrolling aircraft and ships at sea.
  • Illumination of the battlefield for night attacks.
  • Fitted to tanks to blind the opposing land forces.
  • Signalling other units and allied forces.
