Of all the Diamond Jubilee memorabilia that have landed on our desks and inboxes, this is without doubt our favourite.

United Service Tin

To mark the occasion, Fortnum & Mason, who also supplied food delicacies to soldiers during the Crimean War, is presenting 15000 Armed-Forces’ personnel, serving all over the world, with the United Services Tea, containing tea and biscuits. The gift ensures that personnel from the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force will be able to join the rest of the UK in celebrating the Jubilee Weekend with a taste of home.

To coincide with their arrival to the troops, from Monday 28th May, a limited number of the United Services Tins will be available for purchase. Each of which is decorated in Fortnum’s signature eay de nil and white, with the insignia of each of the Services and contains Fortnum’s Queen Anne Blend Tea and Clotted Cream Digestive Biscuits.

Inside each lid, the legend, “Since 1707, Fortnum & Mason has been honoured to serve loyal subjects of the Crown. This offering, to serving military personnel on active service, is a token of our esteem for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Her Armed Forces on the occasion of the Sovereign’s Diamond Jubilee.” is inscribed.

The Fortnum and Mason United Services Tins are available at Fortnum & Mason and online at  with a £1 donation of each tin going to  The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen & Families Association SSAFA Forces Help, a charity that supports serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and the families of both.
