Default Old Drydex Torch with Replica No 8 Battery and LED.

Recent threads prompted me to fix this old torch up. I made a No 8 battery using two N cells. As these would have a lower capacity than a pusser No 8, though being alkaline the difference may not be as great as it would first appear, I wanted them to last. I therefore soldered a 10mm white LED to an old MES base and used that as a lamp. As this is only working on 3V it is drawing a mere 30mA but is still plenty bright enough, ie painful to look at.
