Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. WWII Japanese military flashlight signal light in fully working condition. To operate the user flips the hand crank out, turns it several times, then flips the switch on the side, which starts the dynamo turning. Push the button on the light itself and it shines brightly. It doesn't cast much of a beam but it is enough to send signals using the screw-off head with revolving color wheel, which glows red, green, or blue. These lights were also commonly used by Japanese tank crews in the small dark confines of Armored vehicles.

Interior is a metal case inside which is covered with heavy khaki-colored web canvas. Japanese kanji can be seen on the bakelite case of the light itself and on the nickel-plated brass On/Off switch. Inside the lid are leather loops that hold two spare bulbs (not included), a screwdriver (included), and a nickel plated screw off tool (included).

Leather flap closure is complete but the leather tie down strap is broken, crank handle keeper present as well as the full web sling.

A very interesting fully functional hand crank light that shines in three different colors, as used by Japanese tank crews in World War Two!
