Suffolk used loads of these lanterns from the 1960s through to the 1980s when the GEC Z8831 took over. Unless they have had a SON conversion, which was very rare for Suffolk, they could still be mercury. Suffolk has purged most of its mercury in recent years, but some does still survive in small pockets.

Many years after I first spotted it as a survivor from the past, this glass bowled Revo Diadem still exists in Dartmouth, which is quite amazing given the relative regularity with which lanterns get changed over in Devon.

Also a rarity, this GEC Z5640 series lantern in Dunster in Somerset. Driving past, I couldn't tell if the column was concrete or wood.
