    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 Nick, I would love to own one of her uniforms! The National Army Museum have them.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Here is another ATS private purchase ash tray from my collection. It is nicely made from wood with a brass insert.

    Here is another one, this time a trench art ash tray made from a shell and with an ATS cap badge affixed to the front.

    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'
