    Default What's this on the Soldier's Uniform?

    Part of a lot of paper items I am looking at there is this photo. I was looking at it and I'm scratching my head trying to think what exactly is above the far left soldier's breastpocket.

    I thought it was a flashlight, but I am not so sure. Any idea gents?

    It is indeed a battery powered torch.

    A good old Pertrix lamp. Or a Diamon, but looking at the picture better is even looks like the much rarer Enwell lamp with double leather straps.
