This WWII Red Devils 508th PIR Airborne Tankard is a 16oz. high-quality ceramic tankard / mug, which measures approximately 4.7″ in height x 3.4″ diameter of the base. Modeled after an original tankard in our collection, the Red Devils design appears on a white ceramic Tankard, which makes a notable impression while using or in a display.
The 508tth PIR “Red Devils” trained at both Camp Blanding and Camp Mackall before going overseas. The original mug was likely made in Germany at the end of the war. The back of the mug details the unit’s trek across Europe from training Ireland to Germany.
The 508th was first attached to the 82nd Airborne Division as part of D-Day’s Operation Neptune.
