Rare Trench Mirror 1918

A very unusual and rare item being a trench mirror which could double as a signalling mirror with the following text stamped in the top left hand corner at a 45 degree angle:

BEST OF LUCK
FOR 1918
FROM THE READERS OF THE
SHEFFIELD TELEGRAPH

the mirror is still amazingly contained in its red coloured card cover.There is rust to the lower left hand side which has meshed with the card outer showing these have been together all their life.
Assuming these were issued to a Sheffield Battlion or to troops from that area.
A rare piece of first war militaria
