How is it use

WWI “Portable Trench Apparatus”,* also known as the Flame Projector or Flame Thrower. This photo presents several points of interest: 1) the two sprays point in opposite directions, meaning that the entire wand must be placed in or above the trench, 2) there is no pressure bottle visible, 3) the wand and hose are too small for adequate discharge, 4) The tanks are overly large and probably very heavy when full, and 5) the hoses discharge on the left side and in front of the operator, making it impossible to crawl and hard to walk.
