Default Don't Know What to call it

From my "stash"... No badge on it, but it has the small motor, and a SolaRay in front, and a rear flashing light. Without the rear flashing light, it would be a Federal Y siren, but I don't know if it would be a YRL or what. When was this siren introduced, do you know? This is going to be one of the "Keepers". I would like to put the correct badge on it at some point.

The siren without the rear light is a Y siren. The question is, what is it called when the rear light is added. The SolaRay light in the front is what makes this a Y siren, and the W siren has a single blinking light in the front. A WLR is a W siren, L = light, and R = rear. If anything, this would be a YLR, but I am not certain about this, so this is why I have asked. I was hoping that someone with a lot of knowledge about sirens would have the resources to look this up in one of their catalogs in their collection.
