Trench art cigarette lighter

This is a trench art cigarette lighter. One side has the French surname of 'CHAMPIED' and the years '1917-18', and the other side has the name of the town 'MONASTIR', which at the time, following the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, was a southern province of Serbia. Beneath this is the word 'SERBIE' and, below this, a stylised French Armee d'Orient crescent.
