This is a WW1 British SRD rum jug by Doulton of Lambeth purchased at a traditional French brocante market in the Somme region of France and is in a well used relic condition with some chips and holes as shown, in keeping with its age and history and for this piece, reflected in the price. We have some more of these in slightly better condition in the militaria section of our website. This is a British WW1 SRD Rum Jar 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 has the usual manufacturing imperfections of a jar like this as well as the wear detailed above. On the neck of the jar are the letters SRD and a little chip: 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 - as shown in the pictures and video. 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
