    Hiya, seems ages since I bought anything new for my ATS collection. This weekend we did a new Living History show and I had a nice find on one of the stalls.

    This silver plated tureen was presented to Subaltern G.M. Fawcus, ATS on the occasion of her marriage by her fellow Officers of 143 (Mixed) Heavy Anti Aircraft Regt RA.

    The item is maker marked to Harrison Brothers and Howson of Sheffield.

    143 (M) HAA regt was formed in 1942 and saw sevice defending the UK.

    Cheers, Lez.
