Although various flashlights were sold during the years of World War II, the GS insignia disappeared on these items. It did not return until the 1948 GS catalog on the Eveready and 1949 on the "right angle" flashlight.

 

This doesn't mean they weren't sold during the war years, because old stock would have been sold off first.
