Rare Copper Ships Original Vintage Rum Pump British Royal Navy. No makers marks which is usual with these pumps, the brass valve has been stamped 4 in two places. I have tested the pump with water and it pumps well. Commonly referred to as a 'rum pump', the Royal Navy 'spirit pump' changed little from the start of the photographic record, to the cessation of the rum issue in 1970 British Royal Navy all copper and brass official 40" long "rum pump" or "spirit pump" (Royal Navy p/n 53598) which consists of a brass piston with wooden handle and leather washer which slides into the pump itself. A Royal Navy copper Rum pump, used in the "Issue Room" to draw rum from the baricoe (breaker) or demijohn to the bulk rum measure for further mixing of 2 parts water, lime juice, and sugar to taste! Great original piece, a few dints and marks commensurate with age.
