WWI matchbox covers
« on: August 18, 2018, 12:13:38 PM »
Two examples of the British matchbox covers made during both wars, these are both regimental types and are very hard to find.  The SWb example dates to between the Boer War and WWI, whilst the other for the Welsh dates to mid WWI.

Always looking for 32nd Division items and 13th Armored Division items. Please keep me in mind if you have any.
