Product Description

The Cyclone Trench Lighter is a type of World War II British trench lighter that was commonly used by soldiers in the field. It is a windproof lighter that was designed to work even in the harshest conditions. The name "Cyclone" comes from the spinning wheel design of the flint wheel, which creates a spark to ignite the fuel.

The Cyclone Trench Lighter was made of brass and was about the size of a standard Zippo lighter. It had a push-on cap to protect the fuel reservoir and to cover the flint wheel. To use the lighter, the soldier would remove the cap, and strike the flint wheel to produce a spark. 

The Cyclone Trench Lighter was a popular item among soldiers during World War II and has since become a collector item among military memorabilia collectors. Its durability and functionality in adverse conditions made it a valuable tool for soldiers in the field.
