Default Some "new" flashlights

Here I got tangled with optic lamps and batteries:

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=889041

so I decided to buy miself some flashlight to complete my uniforms. 3 are Daimon and the other 2 are Pertrix. Not in super good condition but I'm filling the gap for the moment. I believe the one in the middle is Luftschutz. I'm not sure if they are all WWII period...

Wonderfull news I was a bit concerned about one of the Pertrix. There were several post war civilian torches within the lot I bought. Those will be sellers, and I might also sell the Luftschutz one, but later. I'll try to get some other models I like most.

I believe these Pertrix "Made in Germany" are post war, aren't they?

I have found my model of Luftschutz lamp in the following web:

https://wo2forum.nl/viewtopic.php?f=...7432&start=345

Seems it would be a Daimon nr 2262 L Luftschutz 1936 . Pity the handle is missing on mine

Well,


I've been working a bit on these and this is the result:


Pertrix, Daimon and Zeiler, they look nicer in the second pic

Well gents,


I'm squeezing the flashlight area together with the batteries...Yesterday I got two lots that included these 13 in the pic. I know, most are civilian or post war...but there are three WWII era ones there which might be keepers.

These are my three Pertrix. The one at the left has a curious system to set the colour filters. The little lever at the right puts the blue filter up, while the wheel around the glass will pull the red or the green filter, depending on the side you turn it to.

Today I got another packet with German militaria items, including a Daimon torch (right in the pic). I thought "A repeated one"...but no!, it's a "new" one I better stop buying flashlights or I won't fit at home... Why are there so many different models???

Gents, I've bought another couple. This time they're Daimon Ambulancia. One is really nice, almost mint, while the other is not so nice. This last one will be seller. I'm expecting some more torches, another couple of Daimon and a WIF signal. I'll pos them When I get them.

Well, some newer flashlights have come in. I thought -"Seems 2 Daimon are repeated"...but not that lucky. See all my Daimon they look alike, don't they. I'll be keeping the nice Daimon at the righ of pic #1 and the WIF Signal.

Gents,

I was shooting some pics of some spare Daimon flash lights, just to send them down to E-stand ( I can't keep them all and need a bit of $$). So when I got to the Wehrmach contract one ( I have 2 feldgrau) I realised it had 3 colour filters: red, green and blue!!! while the keeper had 2 colour filters, red and green, and the central is a blackout shield!!!! What shall I do??? I only wanted 5 nice torches and I now have about 15. I don't want to become a torch collector now This is a mania!!!!
