The story of the flying light
During world war 2 the story is told to me by my older brothers & mother , I wasn't thought of then. At night the power would go out and my father would light up the trusted pressure light . Next thing the warden (officer to insure darkness. This was to stop enemy plains from having a target to drop bombs on) would come and yell at dad not so politely PUT THAT !!!!!! light out it is like a beacon and lighting up the whole street . This was on a good night when dad would get the light to work . The bad nights he would try to light it as per usual but it wouldn't light. So after talking to it for a hour , not so politely, with all the names he called it ( I have never found another light with that brand on them ). He would pick up the light (still not working ) take it to the back door and THROWING it as hard as he could, talking to it as it was flying in the air then landing in the bushes. Next day my mother would go and retrieve it . that night the same thing again . So if you find a light all battered and bent this may of been my fathers light . If the light is not dented at all look after it and don't treat it this way it wont help it to work .This is what did happen. - Albert
