    I have known about this piece of "Jersey" trench art for the last 40 odd years. I first saw it as a youngster in St.peters Bunker Museum here on the Island, then when the museum closed it changed ownership and went to the German War Tunnels. They disposed of unwanted items a while ago and a friend got it. I have just acquired it a few days ago. I don't think ther are too many pieces of trench art made here on the islands but this is certainly one of them. The 88 shell being cut down and a 2cm shell added. So far the missus has not seen its trench art and just thinks its a candle holder so its in the living room.
    All the best from Jersey,

    Excellent relic.

    Not so excellent ruse - SWMBO will find out and her wrath will be terrible to behold!

    Hand wrought pieces are always interesting.
