      Great piece! Here's a story we published about the Christmas Truce of 1914.

      GREAT! Keep it together & pass it down so your family doesn't forget what they went thru.

      The 1914 Queen Mary Christmas Tin in good condition is always a wonderful piece, but actually having it engraved with the recipient's name is just outstanding! This with the photo and the trench lighter make this make this something that as a collector I am envious of, but at the same time am very happy is still with the recipient's family.
