Brass Lighter With Inscriptions


Recommended Posts

post-201075-0-40231000-1541158426_thumb.jpgI have a WW2 brass lighter that has some interesting inscriptions on it. I was wondering if anyone could help fill in some of the information. Im a newbee at all this.

One one side etched into it says...

"Taken From Col

Staphe S.S.

Troops

He's Dead

PE Dec 44"

On the other side it says...

Bastone

82=Airborn

/44

PE"

Then on one of the narrow edges is also etched...

"PE 1944"

 

Anyone know who Col Staphe is? etc

Thanks.
