Princess Mary's Gift Box

In November 1914, an advertisement was placed in the press inviting monetary contributions to a Sailors & Soldiers Christmas Fund, an idea from Princess Mary. The money raised was spent on an embossed brass box, the contents varying, depending on whether the recipient was a smoker, non smoker, served in the Indian army or was a nurse.
