P.S. I take one thing back; the place of manufacture is called out. On the bottom edge of the outer end cap, in tiny letters just barely visible, it reads: "HONG KONG BRITISH EMPIRE".

Recently got one in a package deal on eBay. I was surprised at its good quality for a Hong Kong light. Although place of manufacture is not called out on this light, I know from experience with this brand as to where they were made. The end cap is actually two pieces; the outermost one unscrews to reveal a clip on the inner end cap for a spare bulb. Not your average stamped-out HK flashlight fare!
