Found in fuel/ballast tank
« on: September 14, 2012, 07:59:30 PM »
We found a USN flashlight made by Delta Electric co. in #6d fuel/ ballast tank. we pulled the batteries and we could still read one label pretty good. It was labeled Navy type c. I sent photo to Brightstar battery company and the said it was made between 1943 and 1956. We think it was dropped in 1957 when they were servicing the tank flood ports.
