Hi I've just picked up this old tin torch it looks like it could be a bike light, but it has some moveable wire brackets on the back? and under the lense it has ER underneath a crown stamped into the metal, I was wondering if it could be an old police lamp or postmans as it also has a metal belt type clip on the back, anyone has any idea where its from, would be much appreciated  scratch

Thanks Jim it does look like a more modern version it would be good to get it dated but there is no makers name on it at all just the ER on the front so its at the least from 1953 scratch

If you look on the museum of technology website (www.museumoftechnology.org.uk) there is an image of that same torch and its box, with a part number of MW/CS/105 and a description of it as a 1950's police torch.
