Looks like a little flashlight with a red lens cover which fastens to the left rear dropout of a randonneur bike; e.g., Singer, Herse, etc. I won one of these on the 'Bay, but I can't locate a battery for it. It looked initially like it would accommodate 2 Size-C batteries, but the battery case is slightly too small in circumference to handle Cs. If there was a Size-B battery, it would probably fit :^) Perhaps maybe our European counterparts might be able to point me in the right direction. Any masters of battery esoterica out there?

These were sold in the United States for a long while, they took a special battery "pack". No longer available as far as I know...
