For some years before and during WW1 every naval rating was issued with a small wooden box with a lockable lid and a metal name tag. This box was used to keep all the sailor's personal and private possessions and other ‘commodities’ and thus became known a ‘ditty box’.

Albert’s ditty box is in the possession of the McKenzie family in Canada
