The TNR Shoulder Lamp, also known as a Personal Light Unit or simply the flashlight, is a heavy duty torch issued to combat personnel in the United States Colonial Marine Corps. It is typically attached to the Marines' M3 Pattern Personal Armor.
The lamp is powered by a rechargeable internal battery, while the halogen white-light bulb itself is mounted on a poseable neck. The unit is typically mounted on a dedicated bracket fitted behind the left shoulder of the standard M3 armor vest, although it is also fitted with a carrying handle to allow it to be detached and used as a hand-held torch.
Newer models have a remote neck, which is connected to the Marine's helmet and automatically moves the light beam to match the direction in which the Marine is looking.
