High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Tilley Lamp derives
from John Tilley's invention of the hydro-pneumatic blowpipe in
1813. W.H.Tilley were manufacturing pressure lamps at their works
in Stoke Newington in 1818, and Shoreditch in the 1830s. The
company moved to Brent Street in Hendon in 1915 during World War I,
and started work with paraffin (kerosene) as a fuel for the lamps.
During World War II the Tilley Lamp was widely used in the British
armed forces, and became so popular that Tilley became used as a
generic name for Kerosene lamp in many parts of the world, in much
the same way as Hoover is for vacuum cleaners.
