    I can't see a way not to, if a torch is being used. At least you can shield the exposed part of the barrel with a wet rag perhaps. Whatever it does to the paint on the foresight block you will have...

    Not that one, but it is surprisingly hard to find photos of pre-war RAC uniforms.

    AA maybe?

    Could be an early motorcycle courier badge perhaps?
