Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

My Old Dad, as always had an interest in vintage cigarette lighters, especially WW1 trench lighters. He has asked me what type of lighters would have been used by those who served in the Zulu War. (That’s if cigarette lighters were around then… Anyone know!!!! Idea

The earliest versions of lighters were called Strikers. Basically a reusable match stick, dont have a clue how they worked. I have a lighter from 1899, hexagonal shape in solid brass, its half way between a striker and a modern Zippo.

Hope that contributes.

Hi all,
Heres more info

The first lighters were invented in the 16th century and were converted flintlock pistols that used gunpowder. One of the first lighters was invented by a German Chemist named Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner in 1823 and was often called Döbereiner's Lamp. This lighter worked by a reaction of hydrogen to platinum sponge, which gave off a great amount of heat. The device was very large and highly dangerous and fell out of production by the end of the 19th century

Döbereiner lighter.
