Do you remember these lighters?

Remember these? These photos were sent by Claude Locke to Dave Purdy who sent it to me. The story is that the lighters were for sale for 50 cents. The came full of lighter fluid. Unfortunately,there was no lighter fluid for sale. The men would use up the fluid in the lighters, pitch the empty ones into the lagoon then go purchase another one for fifty cents. There must be several lighters in the lagoon at Enewetok and Kwajalein. Claude still has these lighters. Rare souvenirs from the Marshall Islands. Thanks to Claude and Dave for sending the photos of the lighters.
