Golding Automatic was my first thought, because of similarities to the other games associated with that company: Jugola, Rouletto, Bandito and Orbito.
But... all of these have a slot at the top centre and a rotating wheel. The 'owner's manual
' for them is headed: 'Golding Automatics Ltd. 37, London Road, Marks Tey, Essex'. In the little image of Golding's trade stand at ATE 1962, I think I can just make out the Rouletto and Jugola, but no 'flashers'.
And to throw further doubt on the matter, our sometime slot history sleuth, Slotalot had this to say:

I did try to contact the descendants of the people who ran Golding Automatics with the intention of adding a Golding page to my website. Unfortunately they were not very interested in looking back to the "good old days". One thing they did say was as far as they know Golding never made any machines themselves, which I thought was a little strange.
I think they were mainly agents/distributors ?? the Golding machines must have been made for them by a third party. As Treefrog says, they moved into audio equipment in the 1970s.
Brigham's machine has the Golding badge and so, apparently, does Shoot the Bandits (above), which is clearly a sister machine of Beat the Goalie.
