WW1 BRITISH CHRISTMAS 1914 QUEEN ALEXANDRA TIN
The much rarer than the Princess Mary gift fund tin, of the same year, being the Queen Alexandra gift tin.
Information and the criteria under which this tin was issued is very scant. One is represented in the Imperial War Museum's collection with only the detail that it contained 18 cigarettes that contained the monogram 'Alexandra'.
I would very much like to know if it was intended for certain personages or groups of people of a certain position / rank etc.
The tin is in very good overall condition with the paper frontis detail label suffering from rust bleeding from the tin lid.
An un-common item !
