27) An interesting WW1 WW2 British army issue metal tin and contents. The tin is in good order but does show dings and dents. It has a shiny finish with some minor surface rust spots but was most likely painted originally? The base is WD marked along with other details (see photos) it contains 17 long wax coated wicks. We are not sure if these were used as fast burning candles, wicks for lanterns or some other use? They are clearly original to the container and are the exact length of it. each wick is aprox 11 inches in length. They are in good order but some show breaks to the wax etc.
