Farm tractors and the Dinky Toys Jeep de dépannage ref. 1412 have a light at the rear to illuminate the working area. In french this light is called "phare de travail, how is it called in english ?
Thanks for your help.
Jacques-I always try to help you if I can, but it is not my regular language. When I use google translate French to English = Phare de travail = Working light.
I looked at qualitydiecasttoys.com. The description at Dinky 1412 that light is called there as searchlight. British members, please react if this is correct.

In the States, at least, we call such things a "work light." One could also call it a "searchlight" or a "spotlight" but I think those terms refer more to a lamp that can be aimed and intended to operate over a distance, whereas a work light more likely has a fixed focus and is aimed at the area right behind the vehicle.
Jan and Jonnyangel,
Many thanks for your help with english language. I think that "work light" will do.
