0083. Alderney - Les Casquets Lighthouse (1952 - Electrification Light Source)

The Les Casquets Lighthouse was converted to Electric Light during 1952, with the installation of a 2830 Kilocandela lamp.  The lamp is unusual in that, it rotates counter-clockwise.  

Guernsey Postal Administration commemorated the Golden Jubilee of Electrification of the Les Casquets Lighthouse by the release of 65p stamp on 30-Jul-2002 which depicts the Electrification of the Lighthouse.
