    I couldn't help but notice the date today and was wondering if this might not be International 111 Day? It occurs to me that it only comes once a century. Would this be the day to do something with one's 111's and make a picture post? Very short (late) notice, but perhaps those of you who are inclined might want to have some fun?

    I'll see if I can't try to post something in a while after a wee bit more caffeine. Apologies in advance if this is a dumb idea.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Hi Gary, good call. Perhaps it could be used as a practice for 11th November. 11/11/11 works which ever side of the pond you are on for a change! 11/11/11 includes a couple of 111s. And does two 111s equal a 22?

    Cheers, Graham.

    DOH! You fellers are right! I hadn't thought of the November date. I suspect that today will be a bit of a non-happening 'cause it's such late notice, but I'll still give it a go in a bit and encourage anyone else who might find this buried in all the other posts to do so, too.

    Meanwhile, the November date is now on my calendar so it won't be missed!

    Cheers,
    Gary

    I think I have to give my eldest son then a 111T since its his birthday today and would be significant for him. Having said that, I will be looking for another silent burner since he is the "quiet" type of a fellow :content:

    Morning Turkish just outside the shop door. -3 degrees C. Brrr! All the items in the picture are gifts or trades. Thanks to all my kind friends.

    It's a 111, btw. Happy 111 Day!

    Cheers!

    Hi Gary, is your lighter by any chance an Ifa? (The I looks like a Y) If it is what I think it is, the design predates WW1.

    Also, a question re the 111day, would that also include the 11's? (not them newfangled ones, but the true parent of the 111).

    All the best,

    Wim

    I have a vague and hazy recollection of a 111 day a few years back, worked out quite well as I recall....

    Hi Wim

    The lighter is a Bowers Sure Fire gifted to me by a swell CCSer. I was told it was circa 1930. It's one of the blued steel ones.

    I reckon that this 111 day has pretty much come and gone. But, I think any 11 or 111 should be fair for the date in November. I *may* even have a Svea 11 which I would think might qualify. Sorta. :)

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Right you are Mike. :lol: Hosted by our good friend Shag. :clap: I'd be in for an 11/11/11 photoshoot. It will be here before you know it.
