Peat bricks used in Trenches

Looking around Annan Museum yesterday (prior to watching the Shire take on Annan Athletic) I saw some peat bricks, made locally, which are said to have been of a kind sent to the Western Front. I've never come across any references to peat being used as fuel in trenches - although it seems a sensible thing to do. Are there any references to these that folk may have come across?

Not sure about the trenches.....but as there were several thousand huts in camps, which needed heating, and coal was certainly sent over, it sounds logical.
