This is a matchbox cover I bought a reecently.

The front shows Ypres as it was and reverse shows how it was after the Germans had finished with it.

Sadly I have been unable to find a matchbox of the era the go with it.

So if you have one you might part with or know where I might find one please let me know.

Very nice find.

Think I saw some old matchboxes in the Milestones Museum Basingstoke yesterday, not that that's any help.  Good luck with your search.

Hi Stuart - having recently purchased a matchbox cover for hubby I ‘googled’ for possible matchboxes to fit - eBay as ever has an assortment. Probably not helpful various questionable descriptions as vintage but interesting....
