Many Thanks Adillo, your answer looks more correct by the minute as I read this 1960's publication....1/8th of English Pint.

When I was a young girl learning to cook - 50's, a gill was 5 fluid ounces. Often and still used in cocktail recipes. that was in England. I still use that measure if it comes up when using old recipes. My original books are from the 60's LOL. Mrs. Beetons - the one I used, recipes always began with 14lbs of whatever the staple was, well I don't know how old that was, but it was my bible for a long time.
