Lifeboat or storm matches

This match tin belonged to Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton (1874-1922). It's a rectangular metal tin containing 46 matches and has a striking area on the side. The matches are round in section, the heads are about 13 mm long, brown-coloured with bright pink tips. The tin is inscribed with the maker's name: 'R Bell & Co, Patent, London.' These are lifeboat or storm matches, the brown compound intended to keep them burning in a strong wind.
