The Great War, Withington Commemorative Mug

A visitor to the village brought this commemorative mug to the Hare and Hounds in February 2012. The mug commemorates the treaty of Versailles, signed on 28th June 1919. 

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.
