WW2 SOE Dynamo Torch in Working Condition.
A great opportunity to purchase an original WW2 SOE Dynamo Torch in Working Condition.
These torches were used by SOE and are dynamo powered, batteries were in very short supply during WW2, the top leaver is pumped by hand to spin the dynamo, which generates the light.
This one is correct because it was made by Phillips in Holland, it carries the Phillips branding. Holland was invaded in 1940 by the Germans in 1940, the Phillips factory was taken over by the Nazi's and all items were then made with German wording.
The Allies purchased these dynamo torches before the invasion from Phillips and these are the only ones issued to SOE.
