Spirit Measure from RAF Wyton

A copper half gill spirit measure stamped Trafalgar 1805 and below engraved "Traf Night RAF Wyton '93". RAF Wyton in Cambridgeshire was a RFC field in WWI and in the Second World War was home to the Pathfinders. Post war, Wyton was a V Bomber base with provision for nuclear weapons. We assume this measure was presented as a trophy. 5 cm.
