I enjoy collecting old historical items and finding out about them.

As the second world war ended military service men thanked god for there lives and returned home to there families.

One group of twenty two men believed that they owed a large proportion of that thanks to there commanding officer Lt Col W.H. Binns because on returning home they purchased a solid silver tankard and (at what must of been a considerable expense) had all of there signatures engraved on it.
