This is a Very Cool Korean War era Ronson Whirlwind Lighter with 2nd Squadron South Africa Air Force Badge, And The Lord's PRAYER (on a dog Tag) Attached. Hard to say if this was owned by a South African Airmen, or a USAF Airman, since the Unit was part of the 18th Fighter- Bomber wing, USAF, during the conflict, but, either way, it is a great piece of Korean War History!
