    @Giri
    Thanks for posting that information. Much appreciated. I guess that cup would have a story to tell.

    Yes, ditto thank you Giri,
    Our query shifts from Navy rum measure to Army. I of course credit Giri's "WW1" "German" connection to lead me to more info. At 1st, that second link of his had me scratching my head but a subsequent search came back to a link w/more info (in a thread where the SAME guy also posts!). This link is that and source for another view of maker's mark.
    I am sure it is the same maker but a different green and maker's mark has subtle differences (note swords) not just the year.

    I myself am unsure how to type the letters of the maker's mark inline (for addl search).
    It does appear that the 17 at the bottom represents 1917, if so John's is 1916 or?
    thx omc

    What a research!
    From a Canadian boy-scout mug to the mug of the German soldiers which gave them liquid courage before storming out of a trench in the middle of WWI.

    I have one of the patented Dec7 1915 sets. Took me a while to figure out that if you flip the pot with lid upside down everything fits together. ](*,)
    I never got the fancy cotton twill sack but I did get the aluminum tin cup. :content:
