    .50 calibre Cigarette Lighter.

    Whilst not really into trench art myself, I do have a few small items that I have picked up over the years and did always fancy a lighter but seeing them over the years none of them ticked the box for me until today when I picked this one up....nice and simple, no frills.

    This thread prompted me to go find an item which I've had for 25 years or so. I found it in a house-clearance shop in Sudbury, Suffolk ; 8th Air Force country with Sudbury Airfield ( B-24s ) close by and Lavenham ( B-17s ) just up the road.
    It's quite rough-and-ready and looks to be base-workshop made - I like the base of the lighter which appears to be a screwcap from an oil or fuel can.....

    Great photos guys.

    As we're sharing pics of lighters, here's one I have that is made from a 20mm Vulcan.

    A nice variation there with the two casings...I would definitely have bought one like that!

    A nice variation using a Vulcan round instead of the usual .50"!
