A jar of our Strawberry Conserve is presented in a stylish ceramic canister. One Sunday morning in 1918 Second Lieutenant C. L. Milburn flew over the Tiptree jam factory in a BE2E training aircraft known as "Red-Nose". Dropping a hand-written note attached to a streamer, he asked for more of the morale-boosting conserve to be sent to him at the nearby Stow Maries Aerodrome. This was the first of many such requests. Sadly, he and many other pilots from the fledgling Royal Air Force did not survive the war.
