Vintage Military Angle Head GEC TL-122 Style Torch With Signalling Flash Button And Filters 

A very nice Vintage Military Angle Head GEC TL-122 Style Torch With Signalling Flash Button And Filters.  In good condition with a few surface scuffs and marks. The filters are slightly creased from storage in the base compartment.

Similar design to the TL-122 Flashlights, designed and used by the US and Allies military in WW2, this one was made by GEC, in the UK, based on the TL-122C and made from brown plastic with brass fittings. We believe it dates from the end of WW2 to the early 1950s.
