Images of a mug from the Parish of Withington commemorating the treaty of Versailles, signed on 28th June 1919, have been added to the Local History section of this website.  

Such mugs were commonly distributed to schoolchildren across the country on Peace Day, 19th July 1919, the day of the official celebration to mark the end of the war.

The design features the flags of the four largest allies, France, Italy, Great Britain and the USA. Click here to view photos
