WWI Trench Lighter
click for an even bigger image



Army lighter as used in the trenches. This is not a "trench art" piece, but an actual lighter as used by the troops at the front. The flint compartment is empty, but opens easily for the insertion of a flint, and the flint wheel spins freely. There is a long length of wick still present. Good used condition.
