    Default ATS presentation silver ash tray

    Hiya, this is a small ash tray, made of silver by the well known silver makers "Maplin & Webb". It is Hallmarked for London and the date letter is for 1944.

    The reverse is inscribed "From A Troop A.T.S. 631 Battery"..

    This would have been a mixed sex Anti Arcraft Battery. No doubt given as a gift to a departing member of the unit. Whoever was given it must have been well liked, as it could not have been a cheap item to buy during the war.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Hi lez

    Princess Elizabeth joined the ATS in 1944 I wonder if she would have used one of these !

    I bet her dress uniform was made by a Savile Row tailor.

    I don't know but it doesn't look like Savile Row styling to me, unless Her Majesty was modelling the 'Army Depot Collection'
