Restoring a WW2 JEAB Flashlight!

About: Prop maker and now (kida) animater (<-- typo)

Recently I went down to my local airsoft store to by some BBs and I came across some real WW2 flashlights that were going cheap and so I bought a JEAB flashlight, which was the flashlight used by the sweedish army during the war, and was designed by the Nazis but they never used them in the war (Im not 100% sure if all of this is true or not, but thats what I was told and also I researched it a bit)

I got it so cheap because the battery was missing and I planed on gutting it and making an ammo box but instead I decided I would try and fix it first.

I wired it up to a 9 volt battery at first but it was too powerful and plew the bulb after a few uses, but I knew it worked.

I bought a battery holder that fits 2 AA batterys and so I taped the red wire to the piece of brass on the right of the flashlight and taped the black wire to the middle piece of brass to complete the circut and it worked perfectly :D The battery holder even snapped right into place inside the flashlight
