I found this lighter in my attic over 30 years ago.It belonged to an old WW2 vet. I was told he was a gunner on a bomber. I was curious about the insignas on the face of the lighter. Sorry for the picture quality(they'll get better in time).

    Wings appear to be pilot wings and the insignia is for the China Burma India (CBI) theater of WW2.

    Post some details photographs of the bottom to confirm the era of the lighter matches.
