re: model #1939 I'm not sure if you can help but my Dad recently told me a story of his childhood that his favorite toy was a red plastic flashlight his uncle had brought home from ww2 and had given to him to play with. All I know is it was red and plastic. I was looking to buy one like it for a gift for my dad and I didn't know if the one pictured above is probably what it looked like. Or were there many other red plactic flashlights. Is this what I should be looking for or if they are hard to find and where do I start looking .Could you be of any help on any of these questions? Thank you for your time.
