Feeling peckish? These ships biscuits are much tastier than their Victorian equivalent. These Scrumptious Oats & Honey Biscuits come in a beautifully designed tin decorated with a wood cut of the SS Great Britain's launch in 1843.
"We have molasses, vinegar, butter, salt, pepper and lime juice given out every Saturday morning. With the help of molasses I can eat the oat-meal porridge very well." Daniel Higson - Lawyer's Clerk - On Board 1869, Liverpool – Melbourne.
