    Default WWII Map Light? US or foreign?

    I ran across what appears to be a map light it has a switch that turns the light to red and it has a lanyard. It doesn't have any markings and it might not even be military but I cannot find anything by searching boy scouts or camping. It might not even be US made. If anyone has seen anything like this let me know! The lanyard reminded me of a pistol lanyard but not one I recognized (similar in material to a webley lanyard). WWII Map Light?

    I would also add US Navy/Marine Corps Aviators.
    They were carried on their flight suits.
    I have one from the 80's that I got from a friend who worked in flight equipment.
