LR1869: Copyright The Royal Lincolnshire Regimental Museum Trust/Lincolnshire County Council, © All Rights Reserved. LR1869 : In November 1914 an advertisement was placed in the national press inviting contributions to a 'sailors and soldiers' Christmas Fund. This was instigated by Princess Mary, the daughter of King George V and Queen Mary. The idea was to give every serviceman serving overseas on Christmas Day 1914 a gift from the nation. There was an overwhelming response and the money was spent on an embossed brass box, based on a design by Messrs Adshead and Ramsey. The contents varied; officers and men on active service afloat or at the front received a box containing a pipe, lighter, 1oz of tobacco and twenty cigarettes in distinctive monogrammed wrappers. Non-smokers and boys received a pencil and packet of sweets. Indian troops got sweets and spices, and nurses got chocolate. This box belonged to E. Tatton. Service Number 3369.
