The Flashlight is an item that is used in many events. It is one of the possible requirements to get the Military Rescue ending, so it should be considered a priority during Scavenging. When it breaks, it can be repaired with the Boy Scout Handbook.
The flashlight appears to be a regular red flashlight. When broken, it has broken glass.
