I inherited this same flashlight from my dad.He originally bought it in the late 1950's to use on his boat.It survived the bangs and scrapes of my childhood and now I use ut on my boat.It still works perfectly and still floats. The only difference is mine has a push button switch instead of a turning type like the one pictured.It has an internal blinker that lights up the case.It uses a 6 volt lantern battery with spring terminals.

I have come into procession of this light and for the life of me I cannot determine what size of battery it takes and how it goes into the light. Can you help me with that information?
