R.A.F. 1941 Pattern Mae West Floating Torch


Stores Ref. 5c/2728. The correct 2-piece “torch” for the 1941 patt. mae-west. The cylindrical metal battery container has its original pale drab blue-grey paint finish and the bulb and clear cover are attached to the top of the wooden floating section. The wiring loom is in good condition retaining most of the original rubber covering. It probably isn\'t too flexible though!The paint finish on the battery case is good although there light surface corrosion, paint chipping and soiling. The casing is clearly stamped with Air Ministry King\'s Crown markings and ref. nos. Still partially wrapped in original tape. Not to be confused with the “Easco” lamps which are not correct for the pocket on the mae-west. Stock code MW15218.
