Stoneware WW1 Rum Ration Jar

S.R.D stamped for 'Service Rations Department' although soldiers commonly said it stood for ' Seldom Reaches Destination' or ' Soon Runs Dry' 

In very good condition considering its age and use, there is just one chip to the lower edge of the rim as shown in photos.  I love that you can see two marks from when it was being made it almost looks like finger prints.

Manufactured and stamped Doulton

 

Measuring;

24.5cm tall x 15cm diameter overall.  The spout opening is 2cm diameter
