    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I don't remember seeing a WWII dated example previously though obviously rum was still issued then. Cool item.

    Hi Jerry, all the ones I had seen previously were WW1 too.

    I've seen a 1939 dated example, but 1945 is quite late! Neat!

    The British always did know how to fight a war.

    Nice find Ade!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
