This was the type of Camera taken into the Battlefield area during WW1. Up to 1916 all photography on the front line was forbidden, the only pictures obtained were smuggled out, as the government was trying to prevent the people at home from realising the true horrors. Later reporters and photography was accepted, these cameras were small enough to conceal in a soldiers kit, and were common for the time.
