World War One Trench Art

Trench Art is any decorative item made by soldiers, prisoners of war or civilians where the manufacture is directly linked to armed conflict or its consequences. Common articles are decorated shell and bullet casings and items carved from wood. The practice of trench art flourished during World War One due to soldiers having a lot of down time during battles and to prevent boredom.
