This is a soldier’s lighter for use in the trenches. It is another example of trench art. It is in the shape of a book, measuring 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ x 1/2.” The interior swings open, revealing the lighter. The lighter displays quite attractively. It would make a fine addition to a display of items that a soldier would have owned in the trenches. I do not believe the lighter operates.
