British M3A1 Scout Car Lights

I am intending on restoring my M3A1 Scout Car to how it would have been under British command. As my ditching roller had already been removed when I bought the project it seemed to make even more sense to go with this decision as they were often removed by the British Army during WW2. After looking over original photos I noticed that the British Army removed the standard Guide headlamps and replaced them with a single black out light on one wing. Whilst at auto-jumble in Ciney, Belgium, I spotted a blackout light made by a British firm called Butlers, it was in great original condition and will be perfect for my British restoration.
