Description

Initially formed in 1916 as 47 Squadron RFC as a home defence Squadron, the Squadron was split with some joining 33 Squadron and the remainder being sent to Greece.

Surprisingly, the Squadron was involved in the Russian Revolution being sent to Southern Russia in support of the White Russian forces. Although ostensibly to provide training, the Squadron was involved in operational duties.

From 1920 to 1946 the squadron was equipped with Fighter/Ground Attack aircraft such as the Beaufighter and the Mosquito.

In 1946 the Squadron became a Transport Squadron, fielding the HP Hastings, with which it took part in the Berlin Airlift.

47 Squadron became the first in the Royal Air Force to equip with the Blackburn Beverly, and operated the type until its withdrawal in 1967, and the Squadron was disbanded.

The Squadron reformed in 1968 to operate the Lockheed Hercules, which it does to this day.

The mug has a closable lid and a non-slip base which also helps protect surfaces from the effects of any hot liquid in the mug.
It can hold 400ml of your favourite tipple, Brandy, Scotch, or anything else that we are told we should not partake.

The thermos flask can hold 450ml of your favourite tipple and keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.

They are made of stainless Steel with a bamboo sleeve which is laser etched with the insignia of 101 Squadron.

Thank you for your purchase, and your very welcome donation.
