"Vimy" is a reference to Vimy Ridge in France. During most of World War One, Vimy Ridge was one of the toughest defenses held by Germany. Then in 1917, Canadian troops -- who had distinguished themselves as elite fighters -- took the ridge, pushing the Germans over the other side. The entire operation was a feat of military genius.

How this is connected to a lighter from that era is anyone's guess.
