    Found this at a garage sale in the US. Thought you guys across the pond might enjoy seeing it. Wondering if the pub is still there. Obviously, the crisis of September, 1938 would be the Munich Pact Sudetenland. Can anyone tell what type of unit the is.

    Thank you for your reply. The name of the pub is "The Ship". Then it says, "Truman's Beers". I hope this helps.

    The pub is very much still in business - it is now called the Ship Inn.

    It is actually located between the villages of Galleywood and Stock, approx. 3 miles south of Chelmsford. Apart for the addition of a modern picket fence - the pub looks almost identical to the picture above.

    This link takes you to their web site: The Ship Inn
