I was in the Air Force in 1959. We required to purchase this Ray-O-Vac flash and carried while marching in the dark hours. You had to buy it at the Base Commissary, they were not issued, with the money you had or was issued the next day after you arrived at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas.

These flashlights were made by both Ray-O-Vac and the "Merit" Flashlight Company. I purchased one in 1961 at the Base Exchange in Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas. They were mandated to be carried and turned on while marching at night, to prevent from being struck by a motor vehicle. They were a reliable light and were well built.

Looks like a Ray-O-Vac that I owned in 1959.
