  1. I have a table lighter that belonged to my father. (He was in QOR for 10 years) It is a suit of armor – says First Battalion Germany 1960-1963. The top of the suit of armor pops open & it used to light from there.

    One of my children got hold of it, popping it open & it will close, but won’t stay closed & flips open. I would like to know if there’s some way to close it again.I’d love to be able to display it again.

    Thank-you in advance!

  2. Sorry if this is not the right place to ask this. Is there any place I could find a place to buy a Queens Own Rifles service ring , I lost one and would like to get new one ,so I can leave to my Grand daughter.
