First bought lamp was from Australia an original 1 million lightforce.. Strangely they came out in UK a few years later and were nowhere near as good as the originals.

I also bought a lazerlight to use with gun, small than lightforce.

Actually,...I believe that an interesting article could  be penned, solely about the various miscellaneous Field Sports Suppliers and canny entrepreneurs  that started up, here in the UK, back in those Halcyon Days....

I met all of them, visited their premises, and accepted my bag of coins...it was frequently, emotional...😉

OldPhil, 

That oblong lamp you got in your photo, I well remember them ! Got mine from Argos I think and kept it in my Hilman Avenger so I could check places out on the way home from a night out. Would have been about 1980/81

I recon that would make a great read, there certainly was some characters in the selling game back then... 😀 

Think there were a few high-street suppliers of those oblong type lamps, as Bird Catcher said, Argos did them and I remember getting one from Halfords. One of them came with a red filter too...? 🤔

Here is an interesting tale about a certain seller of rabbit nets, purse and long.

He advertised 12v 18amh batteries for lamping-when they're gone they're gone! £10 each.

I pulled up outside the house and knocked on the back door, door opened by a little child who went of shouting "daddy ANOTHER GUFF at the door" !

I asked Bob for a battery and he fetched one out, I looked it over and stated," yes Ill have one please, Sorry i only have a twenty" now what happened next would have caused serious psychologic issues to someone else, however I've never claimed to be sane. 

The door to the left of me flew open and a woman's hand grabbed the twenty pound note, door shut and she shouted " you will get your tenner tomorrow!" however- what I saw when the door opened was somewhat horrific, a middle aged woman sitting on the pan, flashing something that resembled a donna kebab, horrible. 

Bob apologised, saying she was searching for lice/mite or something and added, you will get you change tomorrow, sorry"

I did eventually I did get my change and I saw bob many times, but I never found out what a Guff was.
