This is a WW1 reproduction SRD jug. the SRD stands for Service Ration Depot - back in the day, the British boys in the trenches used to get a rum ration as part fo their pay....that rum can in this kind of jug. Seeing as most of the jugs didn't make it through the war, the ones that are original cost WAY more than what we are asking, but this is a pretty close copy we made by looking at historical images. The GIs always said the SRD stands for "soon runs dry", or "Seldom reaches destination" and a whole slew of other unsavory things ! It's a badass piece of history that you too can own.
