"Jellicoe" Toby Jug
British Admiral Sir John Jellicoe, a prominent pre-war and wartime naval commander, is the subject of this First World War Toby jug.
The figure of Jellicoe, in full dress naval uniform and cocked hat, sits on a base marked with the Royal Navy's White Ensign. He holds a jug marked "Hell Fire Jack", a nickname arising from the improvements he made to gunnery during his time as director of naval ordnance. This jug is one of a series created by British political cartoonist Francis Carruthers Gould that caricatures Allied military leaders and politicians.
