"I have a very similiar light to this, it looks exaclty the same other than it has a metal handle, and has ORD. DEPT stamped on one side of battery housing and USA on the other, also says army navy special on the tag." I am in the same boat you are, just picked one up at a garage sale this weekend and am looking for more information.

this looks very close to a lamp patented by grether, but I have never seen one marked grether, maybe he licensed the patent to other makers? anyone see any other variations on this?

I have virtually identical lamp, painted in olive drab with what appears to be a serial number,9072, embossed on the manufacturers plate. National Marine Lamp Company of Forestville, Conn. Model, "Excellent". Any one have any further information about this lamp?
