A very good example of  these seldom seen Flasks generally associated
with the Airborne or RAF Command Crews. The photo shows an
unknown means of transport perhaps on its way to Arnhem
or Normandy. The Thermos takes centre place in the picture.
The flask and carrier are quite large, standing some 365 mm tall.
Both flask and container are in very good condition whit the flask
having minor dents to the lower rim. The glass interior is
undamaged and the black finish is very good although the cork appears
to have shrunk. The heavily insulated carrier is without defects.
The base of the flask is clearly stamped with the manufacturer´s
details, a War Department arrow and the all-important date,
