One of several in the collection,this was found in Mametz wood on the Somme.My favourite designation for the S.R.D Mark is 'Seldom Reaches Destination' !. xD

Lovely Jar.....I always wondered what S.R.D meant...now you have enlightened me Len...Thanks!

1 gallon for 64 men, I wonder how much that would measure in a glass, poor buggers needed more than that to face the enemy, the cold of winter, and the boredom in the trenches!

Sometimes the way I like a drink,  my SRD would apply....Soon Runs Dry!
