The Wartime Dynamo Torch

The Air Raid Wardens Issue.
This handy device was very useful in the days when even a simple bicycle lamp battery was very hard to come by. Also that a red rear light was mandatory due to the restricted headlights imposed on all cars. This was a very handy tool that could be used at anytime.
I found that this useful torch is still available today and found in the most odd places, like the island of Rarotonga. Of course the construction is different and instead of a small flashlight bulb, it is replaced by three Light Emitting Diodes (LED's) and a small but efficient rechargable battery has been added.
