Motorists have endless uses for reliable electric torches, especially if they are the kind of motorists who indulge in night rallies and map reading contests. In general I have found such objects to be annoyingly undependable, that is until I discovered the Bardic torch, with its many ingenious and eminently practical features. I hesitate to think how many years ago that was but since then I have had 100% reliability from a couple of these excellent British products, one stumpy, the other quite a formidable length, so that, apart from its unfailing supply of static or flashing illumination, it is quite a handy weapon to have in the car.

Now Bardic has announced a new range of torches, under the type number 66. At first sight a retrograde change seems to have been made, for the case is plastic instead of aluminium and the means of hanging the torch up has changed from a substantial metal ring to a loop of cord. However, this is excused when one appreciates that these changes were made to comply with certain safety (fire) regulations and get these Bardic torches certified by the M.o.T., the Coal Board, etc. It has also been found that the changes speed up production; formerly there was a delay in delivery, so great has been the demand. But the rotary switch that I have found so reliable is retained, it is still easy to flash the beam if desired and the torch is so shaped that it will not roll about when laid down. Moreover, a modification has been introduced to enable the batteries to be easily extracted even if they have been left in the torch so long that they have swollen.

I would not use any other torch and I recommend motorists and bulk buyers of torches alike to buy Bardic, which means buying British and buying a truly efficient product. The makers’ address, for which we are frequently asked, is Bardic Limited, Bond Street, Northam, Southampton, Hampshire (Southampton 20207-9).—W. B.
