British WW1 Field Service Writing Kit Tin.

Here is something that we do not see everyday, in fact its the first time for me. A very rare box , titled to the front, Writing Kit, For Field use Only. Issued to front line British troops who were fighting in the trenches of Europe during WW1. Dated 1914 with goverment stores number and a really nice image of a British ''Tommy'' writing a letter home. The box is in fantastic condition given that its nearly 100 years old. Lid still connected to the body, inside still has its gold finish. Im afarid the contents have gone. A really nice example of a very rare item of British WW1 personal kit.
