Brings back memories. My first camera was a coronet flashmaster. I had it for christmas 1957 I think.
It was quite special to have a flash gun then.
Took PF1 flash bulbs (single use fired by standard Zinc carbon batteries.
Still have several pictures taken on it

Thinking further 1 believe the camera cost about 1 and the flash gun 13shillings ( aprox 65P) flash bulbs were about 1/3pence each (6P each).
Camera was built like a tank will probably outlast modern cameras by a long time

Hi Phantom - Great to see your interest in the Coronet Flashmaster. Like a lot of youngsters back in the fifties, this was my first camera, and I also had the Coro-Flash. It was bought for me for my 14th birthday in '54. My mother bought it through a mail order company for about 27/6d. I took a lot of shots with the camera and my film supply and developing was done through "Gratispool", a company in Scotland. They sent you a free roll of paper film with your prints. No-one else could develop the film. Unfortunately, the camera was stolen shortly after I arrived in Canada in '57, however in more recent years, I have managed to get two of them for my vintage camera collection. Love your Lightning F-6 photos. One of my favourite aircraft.
