Under Flashlight Bulbs at Bulbster.com I found number 222 listed as: 2.25V .25A/TL-3 Mini Screw Base
SKU: 40492 It seems to be the fifth one down on the first page for $1.87 apiece. We'll see...

I need bulbs for mine. people list here this website or another... but how about a number or something so I can actually find some?
I don't know what the voltage etc. is so simply saying "elightbulbs.com" and such doesn't really work!

Help!!! heheh

I have this flashlight. It was part of my U.S. Navy pilot's gear. I have had it since 1973. The only difference is mine doesn't say "A-6B", but "MS 21998-1" instead. It also says "P/N 1730-7". It is a Justrite, though. I just recently bought bulbs for it from bulbster.com. Works like a champ!

I have one. It was issued to me in 1962 when I was aboart the USS Saratoga. It still works but mine has the on button at the end on top. You push the button for on and when you release it the light goes off. I have used it for 48 years. Good product made in the US

I aquired a similar one that is a unpainted aluminum and is stamped "FLASHLIGHT, MS21998 2. PENLIGHT STYLE PILOTS P/N 1730-8 JUSTRITE U.S.". I think its for pilots, any info would be appreciated.

I found my 70's Air Force issue flashlight identical to this. Sprayed some contact cleaner on it, popped in new batteries and it still works!

I have the exact same flashlight. Found it as a kid in a box of my grandfathers old military stuff. (He was veteran paratrooper of 30yrs) One of those rub on the heads, "Go on and keep it boy" moments from many years ago. Still works and I used it many times as I was in the Army years later. It still works after all these years, and I still use it from time to time.

Found one of these in a old pair of air force boots I bought, when I tried them on, why it was there I have no idea.
