Smoking policy - free matches

It is normal to find strict smoking policies on tankers and other types of ships.

The matchboxes are large and too big for crew pockets, so they shouldn't be accidentally taken on deck or in the engine room. Butane cigarette lighters are banned on board and the only matches allowed are those supplied by the company, to be used in smoking areas only. Click the image to enlarge.
