Last WWI Flamethrower Found

Not the backpack-style individual weapon familiar from WWII, but a large crew-served weapon that was used to clear trenches and allow British troops to move across No Man's Land unhindered.

The team that discovered the old secret weapon, buried under the mud of the Somme for all these years, also plans to make a working replica.
