This is a British WW1 SRD Rum Jar made by Pearson & Co of Chesterfield dating from 1914-1918 often seen in trench photographs from WW1 and used to send rum supplies to the soldiers at war across Europe. This flagon is the standard 1 gallon size. This stoneware jar is in a good used condition with just the usual manufacturing imperfections of a jar like this. On the neck of the jar are the letters SRD: These are for ‘ Supply Reserve Depot’ but were often said to represent ‘Seldom Reaches Destination’ or ‘Soon runs Dry’. This piece of British militaria history was bought from a traditional brocante market in the Somme region of France, famous for the many Battlefields in the area. All items we sell are vintage or used and will have signs of use which is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal. Please see pictures which form part of the description. In this case the jugs we sell are over 100 years old and have been used in WW1 so will have marks, castings flaws and chips here and there. See our online vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds for your home and garden including a wide selection of WW1 militaria, all sourced from markets and militaria fairs across France. NB: White marks are light reflection not flaws
