EDITORS COMMENTS
This Second World War trench art lighter, available as a print from Mary Evans Prints Online, showcases the creativity and resourcefulness of soldiers during times of conflict. The intricately crafted piece takes the form of a 20mm shell, a common munition used in the war. The authenticity of the design is enhanced by the inclusion of a genuine RAF great-coat button on top, adding an aeronautical touch to this military collectible. Trench art, also known as soldier art, emerged during the First and Second World Wars as a means for soldiers to express their creativity and pass the time in the harsh conditions of the trenches. Using discarded materials, such as spent shells and bullets, soldiers transformed these objects into personal keepsakes, functional items, and works of art. The 20mm shell trench art lighter is a testament to the ingenuity and craftsmanship of these soldiers. The lighter's interior houses a functional flint wheel and fuel reservoir, making it a practical item for use during wartime. The exterior, adorned with intricate engravings and the RAF button, adds a layer of meaning and significance to the piece. The Second World War trench art lighter in the shape of a 20mm shell with an RAF great-coat button on top is not only an intriguing historical artifact but also a reminder of the resilience and resourcefulness of soldiers during times of war. This print from Mary Evans Prints Online offers a unique glimpse into the past, providing a tangible connection to the history of the Second World War and the soldiers who lived through it.
