Schilt P4 flamethrower

Manufactured c.1917-18 based on the previous Portable series started in 1915.
8L capacity gasoline tank, 10-12m effective range, 5mn long fuse, spring-loaded lever trigger.

A much more bulky design than its German counterpart, but with a very sexy lance. The P series was derived from the larger static Schilt No1 and No2 flamethrowers.

Books About  Trans Men and Transition

I have tried to collect a comprehensive list of both fiction and non-fiction books that are about trans men or have trans men in them. Despite a lot of research I’m sure I have missed some. If you know of a book that should be on the list please let me know. As a disclaimer I have not read all of these books and cannot speak to how well or poorly they represent trans men.
