This is a picture I found online of one of my flashlights. It is from the Flashlight Museum. This one is dated 1942. The one I have is exactly the same only add a touch of rust. And this one is metal. On the bottom it reads USN and below that is BMG, I'm guessing that is the manufacturer?
I'm still looking for a pic of the other.
Cheers! And thanks for your help! Oh, the other is plastic, takes 2 D batteries, it is grey and has ribs that run down the length of the flashlight. The lense is domed and it looks old fashioned. It also has U.S.N. on it. ???
