Speed lights
« on: September 20, 2017, 11:37:05 pm »

Speed lights were known to have been used on US icebreakers during WW2. Mounted facing aft on the aft superstructure, they were a shielded light. When were they used? What was their appearance, ie color, and illumination pattern, flashing, constant? Any other information regarding them is appreciated.
Thank You
Jonathan

What is the answer? I am sure I am not alone in being curious, now the question has been raised.
