Original WW1 Button Polisher
* About this Artifact *
Button sticks were issued as a tool to assist with the cleaning of buttons, badges and brass equipment components of a soldier's personal equipment. For example, the button stick would be passed under a jacket button as a barrier to allow polishing without staining the material.
The brass button stick would open to allow the soldier to securly place it around the uniform buttons. This would help prevent from any polish getting on the uniform materiel itself.
World War I was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918. Contemporaneously known as the Great War or "the war to end all wars", it led to the mobilisation of more than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, making it one of the largest wars in history. It is also one of the deadliest conflicts in history, with an estimated 9 million combatant deaths and 13 million civilian deaths as a direct result of the war, while resulting genocides and the related 1918 Spanish flu pandemic caused another 17–100 million deaths worldwide, including an estimated 2.64 million Spanish flu deaths in Europe and as many as 675,000 Spanish flu deaths in the United States.
