S.R.D. Jar

It's funny the things you can find right under your nose - whilst looking for a lost ferret (which we thankfully found) I happened upon one of these in my next door neighbour's garden being used as a doorstop for a potting shed - it's a World War One rum ration jar. The SRD logo has been said to mean many things - Seldom rarely delivered is one - service rum diluted is another - check out the above reenactors page for details. If it looks familiar then you might have seen one in the movie The Trench featuring the current Bond Daniel Craig where one gets broken before the lads were about to go over the top. It is a bit insulting really that scene - implies that all the people going over the top were drunk. Plot of the film
