SENIOR SERVICE is a brand of filterless cigarette named after the nickname of the Royal Navy. The brand's logo is that of a sailing ship. Originally launched in the UK in 1925 by J A Pattreiouex Limited of Manchester which was an associated company of E Robinson & Sons which were both taken over by Gallaher Ltd in 1936.
