US Military TL-122-A Flashlight

Just thought I would bring this one out as it was mentioned with mannequin on M41 Field Jacket. This version made by was used by US forces throughout the war. This version is made of various metals and still operates! smile  Barron

Hi Baron, nice example with original paint and great patina smile   Big bonus that it still works and probably takes
batteries that are still commercially available?

Thanks for posting.

Re: US Military TL-122-A Flashlight

Nice! Can you show the battery end caps so that we can see the markings?  Barron

Re: US Military TL-122-A Flashlight

Thank you for the photo! What I was wondering about was the logo and the security strap attachment. It is interesting how each portion of the flashlight is made of a different metal-steel, pot metal or brass. Is the Eveready battery cap pot metal or steel with the attachment above the logo rather than beside it like the USALite variety?    Barron
