RAF 1941 pattern Mae West floating torch


Code: MW-NIV

Stores reference 5C/2728.  The correct 2-piece 'torch' for the 1941 pattern Mae West.  The cylindrical metal battery container has some paint loss and minor surface corrosion.  With clear Air Ministry crown and reference mark.  The wooden floating section is good and retains both bulb and clear domed cover.  Unusually, the wiring is in excellent flexible condition with  no cracking, perishing or loss of the rubber covering - it appears to be original but may possibly replaced at some point?   Good + used condition.  Stock code MW-NIV.
