Possibly Mary Walker, being the wife of an RN officer, would have smoked Senior Service or Capstan Navy Cut. Both were popular 1930's non filter cigarettes of good quality.
Going upmarket, she may have smoked 'Passing Clouds' which came in a pink packet with a framed picture of a cavalier on the front.
Alternatively there was a brand called 'Three Castles' which came in a green pack with a picture of a three masted merchantman at the dockside with three barrels of rum or brandy on the quay.
Both A & CF smoked pipes. Not having seen the new film I do not know if Rafe Spall smokes a pipe. If he did, then one of Samuel Gawith's range of pipe tobaccos, manufactured in Kendal since 1792, would be a suitable tobacco to smoke. Out of a range of 50 tobaccos, names such as 'Bothy Flake', 'Firedance Flake' and 'Kendal Plug' stand out.
