Tommy lighter coppy

Picked this little lighter up for about £3-4 its brass plated steel was told its from 1933 and i can beleive it, it's a copy of a tommy lighter issued to soilders and sold after WW1

 It has a small fuel tank for extra fuel very useful feature that i wouldn't mind on my zippo
it's a copy because of the pattern of the holes in the chimney and it doesn't have the tommy logo printed on it
like this one

this lighter needs a new wick theres just a small stump of wick left on both sides and i will put it on the belt polisher and post, how it comes out.
