Can anyone give me a positive ID on this.

And would it be possible to let me know the correct way to open it to replace the battery.

 

Many thanks

Its a Bardic.

The base plate comes off by releasing the spring catch on each side - push the black tab towards the base and lift the wire loop over the ridge on the edge of the base plate.

I have a 3 slot battery carrier in mine that takes 1.5V D type cells.

79 Railway Sqn RCT & Wksp REME in the 70s also had them in BAOR as did the train crew and REME repair team of the British Berlin Military Train "The Berliner". Their versions switched to red and green light also, for obvious reasons, perhaps. The slot frame on the back of the lamp played a part in their usefulness.

Manufacture by Chloride Bardic Ltd, once upon a time.
