WW1 Trench Art

This simple looking piece of brass has a horrific story to tell. Known as Trench Art, it originates from the trenches of the First World War when soldiers fashioned items with whatever came to hand. This matchbox cover bears the initials JB on it as well as Arras, Somme and Ypres, three of the bloodiest battles. By permission of Bassetlaw Museum.
