The phrase "Dim as a Toc H lamp" refers to a lamp that is kept in Talbot House and which has become a symbol of the Toc H movement. It was known as the "lamp of maintenance" and was used by Tubby Clayton in the house.

The Toc H lamp is an oil lamp which glows dimly, therefore giving rise to the phrase you mention.
