WW2 British Orilux Torch In Webbing Case
A private purchase British officers Orilux torch in rare webbing carrying case.
The Orilux torch was a carryover from WW1 avaiable for private purchase but in WW2 was supplied in a webbing case in keeping with the new Mills '37 pattern web equipment. These are well known to have been popular with Airborne officers one particularly well known example being seen on the web equipment set used by Major John Howard at Pegasus Bridge & now in the Cafe Gondree right next to it. I have made no attempt to remove the torch from its pouch. A specific wooden compartment in the top section of the case still contains a spare bulb !
