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

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 very good/excellent overall condition retaining flexibility and all of the original rubber covering with only minor cracking. The battery case has a good paint finish and is clearly stamped with A.M. King\'s Crown marking and reference numbers. With the fully marked original issue box. Not to be confused with the “Easco” lamps which are not correct for the pocket on the mae-west. A very good example. Stock code MW16321.
