The January 1969 edition of 'The Railway Observer' (p.18), states that a new allocation list of locomotives issued in October 1968  shows 6931 as fitted with a headlight.  Subsequently the July 1970 edition of 'The Railway Observer' (p.225) records that it had been removed.   However,  the WR stock allocation Sheets record removal as taking place on 16/3/74 suggesting that the headlight was refitted at some point.
