    Default 11/43 dated british chocolate & boiled sweets tin

    Hi all, I thought I'd chuck up my latest purchase. Bought today at a local shop. As you can see it's a Chocolate & Sweets tin as used in the Type D Compo Rations on D-Day.

    My question is, who was the maker P.F. & Co.?



    Cheers,

    Richard.

    I must admit I thought of that too, but I could not find any evidence of them using that abrieviation. But a good possible candidate.

    Cheers, Ade.
