Unofficial history of the Australian
& New Zealand Armed
Federal Match Box
Covers with Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Badges
In the days when most
people smoked and cigarette lighters were not a common item there were
several brands of matches sold. Redheads was one. Federal was another.
Each box had 50 matches and each box had a different image from a
series. Match box cover collecting was popular.
Part of this collection from John Kasnik and
supplied by CW4 (CWO) Herbert H "Sarge" Booker 2nd and the
balance was supplied by Jeff Johnson
