Trench art is the name given to objects made from materials of war by soldiers, prisoners of war and civilians during and after armed conflict. Some items were made to be sold while others were made as personal mementoes.
The bullet pencil is one of several WW1 mementoes that belonged to Amy Lea Jenkyn (nee Moncrieff), whose brother John Bain Moncrieff was killed in France in September 1916.
