I found an image of another tile like it, but I like the colors and the glaze job on mine better.


The note from that page:

Voedsel Vrede Vrijheid

Tile from the Royal Delft factory (de Porceleyne Fles) commemorating the Allied food drop (Operations Manna and Chowhound) over the Netherlands between April 29 and May 5, 1945. One of three tiles bought second-hand on marktplaats.

Here is a site with information on the history ("recollections from veterans and Dutch citizens"), and of many items commemorating the food drops in 1945, including tiles like this one, :
