    Default War Department marked glass dish/ pot

    Hi all. Just got this from the bootsale. I have never seen such a thing before and am wondering what it is off. Underneath the crows foot is the word NAZEING. I have looked up the Nazeing factory and found that:

    WWII. War production was directed to ships’ signal lights and semaphore lenses for the Admiralty, and lamp caps for the Ministry of Aircraft Production. The shed was upgraded to Nissen huts and army surplus tents and, by the end of the war, the factory was producing glass for many government departments.

    So if anyone could suggest what it was for that would be great. Cheers.

    It does have similarities. I wish it was, although I suspect that the reality will be far more mundane, like an army issue fish paste ration pot for Tommy's sandwiches
