The Spirit of ANZAC toby jug - Bairstow Manor Pottery 2015

The Spirit of ANZAC toby jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a 2015 limited edition of 200. The ANZAC legend was born on April 25, 1915, when some 20,000 soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landed under fire on the shores of Gallipoli, Turkey to fight in World War I. The Spirit of ANZAC was suggested by official war historian C.E.W. Bean to have "stood, and still stands, for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship and endurance that will never own defeat." The Spirit is epitomised in the values of comradeship, courage and sacrifice: others before self. The inscription around the base of the jug reads "At the going down of the sun and in the morning we shall remember them." The Australian and New Zealand flags form the handle of the jug. This toby jug was modeled by Ray Noble.
