    Cool item Ade, Have you tried restoring it to see if it will work, as a lighter that is?

    Hi Jerry, yes it still strikes a spark OK. Just needs wadding and a wick.

    I always used to maintain Lez's old Zippo lighter when she smoked (She has not touched a cigarette since her heart attack last New Year: very proud of her!) so it would be simple to restore.

    Cheers, Ade.

    As you say Ade, a wick and wadding is easy to get. Good for Lez on the given up smoking.

    I like it, theres so many different "trench art" variations of lighters, it should be a collecting hobby, I used to have a 20mm round that was made into one, and screwed into a brass base plate from a 6pdr shell, my dad used to use it at home every day, god knows what happened to it
