Zippo’s windproof lighter may have been THE lighter to have during WWII, but it wasn’t the only lighter soldiers carried. WWI trench lighters, now called foxhole lighters, offered a less visible flame. Competitors like IMCO, Dunhill and Ronson marketed their own service lighters. A perfect gift from home, lighters were more than just a way to light cigarettes. They functioned as candles, fire starters, and, on the coldest of nights, a tiny heat source. In fact, a lighter / handwarmer combo soon arrived on the market that was safe enough to warm your pocket, but could still light your cigarette.
