This is a small Justrite brass caver’s lamp. The headlamp was designed to be worn by cavers and miners. A mixture of water and chemicals would make acetylene gas to burn for visibility underground. The tiny headlamp belonged to Les Cade, and was donated to the Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum by his family.
