Diamonds are diamond shaped. Either a square on its side or a squished square on its side. To me a lozenge is an oval with straight sides. A three D version would be a Hedex pill or short sausage.

The two light units quoted and illustrated certainly appear on Scootacars in orange form, no idea if they are correct for some but they are not the units fitted to mine and which I would like to remain on the car by choice. Marc's MkI has a pair with it and I have owned other Scootacars with these lozenge shaped light units. Those new units do have the benefit of sometimes coming with a rubber backing that can fit a Scootacar and I would guess they are worth looking out for. THe Scootacar is in storage so not near enough for a pic.

 I always thought the proper correct pattern was the sort which were the same height both ends as opposed to triangular in side profile. (NB, not to be confused with Scootacar Mk 2 rear lights)

Whatever happened to Victory V's
They were square with the corners cut off - were they lozenges or diamonds in disguise?

Interesting, I looked it up and mathematically, no it is not. I am correct. Need to look in a dictionary as to most people a lozenge actually is not so much a shape bit something to take orally like the Fisherman's Friend (Goodness knows why, they are disgusting! Do they do Marmite flavour?). Then of course there is the Loxley Lozenge which was on telly just two days ago after lunch. Still funny.
