Rated 5 out of 5 by Lis247 from RAF Centenary Mug for 2018 - beautiful I ordered this as soon as I could, it (well 4) arrived today and they are gorgeous with the artwork by Matthew Rice, in his indomitable style. Officers, Airmen and Airwomen, 14 aircraft, a tribute to The Few (77th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this year) is inside the mug, radar, the RAF Crest, and Roundels galore, fantastic to see so much packed into the decoration and yet so beautifully done with the RAF's colours and the gold of the Crest predominating. Love it. Well done... I think this will be very popular and fly off the shelves, perhaps first sell out 2 days after launch says it all. Above all a fantastic donation to the RAF100 Charitable Appeal with the sale of each mug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kookoo from Beautiful, well designed mug for a great cause I purchased this mug as a gift for my husband who is a RAF Airman. He was absolutely delighted with it, we both agree that the design is really well done and makes a fitting tribute, there is clearly a lot of thought gone into the design process and it really shows in how utterly wonderful it looks overall. In addition we both love that a percentage of the proceeds are being donated to the RAF 100 Charitable Appeal. If you are hesitating in making a purchase then hit add to basket as you wont regret it, it would make a perfect treat for yourself or perhaps a gift for a loved one that served in the armed forces or has an interest in aircraft...

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyLuxuryItem from RAF love My OH did 25yrs in the RAF and we survived 13yrs of that married so what else could I get him for this year's Wedding Anniversary gift?? He opened it today and was (mercifully) highly impressed. He's had a few Oranges, Starry Skies and Black Toast over the years but this apparently beat them all. I have heard it from the Engineer's mouth ;-) Now..if you could bring out a RAF wives one, or at least Military Wives, I think we'd all be impressed. After all.. I think we know who deserves a good mug of tea more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoFJo from Possibly my favourite Emma Bridgewater 1/2pint mug Sunday 1 April marked the Centenary of the RAF. Such a wonderful way to mark this occasion, we can now appreciate the fine pottery of Emma Bridgewater, the vivid, spectacular and significant illustrations by Matthew Rice and the vital work of the servicemen and women. I purchased one for family and one for a close friend and will order more when in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by margot01 from SO DISSAPOINTED I was so disappointed when this RAF mug had sold out before I had a chance to order, however, I was delighted to see it back in stock again and ordered a mug for my partner immediately. My mug arrived this morning. I had a quick peek at it whilst my partner was out of the room and quickly put it back in its box where it'll stay until I put it under the tree at Christmas.. I am so happy with the mug, which is an excellent piece of art in its own right and will be the envy of many a friend...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hannahlouise from Beautifully designed commemorative mug Probably my favourite ever purchase from Emma Bridgewater so far. I absolutely love the design, colours and the wording inside the mug is such a meaningful touch. I love it even more knowing that £5 from every purchase of this mug is going to a great cause.
