Prize Tankard Prize Tankard
Thanks to David Copland for emailing these images of a 1st Lincoln[shire] Rifle Volunteers silver Prize Tankard to us. This Tankard was presented by Lieutenant-Colonel Cracroft-Amcotts to Colour Sergeant J.Durance in 1875, but tantalisingly we don't know why. David put this item up for sale on eBay on 12 July 2018.
Weston Cracroft-Amcotts was a Liberal MP from 1868 to 1874, whose home was Kettlethorpe Hall in Lincolnshire. He was a Deputy Lieutenant for Lincolnshire, a Justice of the Peace for Lindsey, and served as High Sheriff of Lincolnshire from 1861 to 1862. He was a major in the Royal North Lincoln Militia and the Lieutenant-colonel of the 1st Battalion Lincolnshire Rifle Volunteers.
