    Another flashlight question.

    I picked up this French flashlight (has the French trademark registration codes on the back). I have found no information about this model. Something about it looks "1930's civilian" to me but the red/blue filters indicate a military/civil defense purpose. The logo is a mystery to me. Another reenactor opined it may be for a combo hand/bicycle lamp. Nice light, lit right up with new battery (4.5v), original bulb.

    Anyone seen this logo or a light like this?

    Thanks, yes, my thought it is most likely civilian or civil defense but it does seem to be prewar.

    Merci, oui, ma pensée, il est plus probable de la défense civile ou civile, mais il ne semble pas être d'avant-guerre.

    I am also interested in what company made the lamp.

    Je suis aussi intéressé à ce que l'entreprise fait de la lampe.

    Discovered, it is a French prewar/very early war "Defense Passive" light.
