That is the first I have heard about it, unless it is something saying
“If found, please return to the pub”
     
14 June 2008, The Spectator (London, UK), “Global Warming” by Theodore Dalrymple, pg. ?:
One had the words ‘If found, please return to the pub’ inscribed on his chest; another, ‘Lager recycling unit.’ I shouldn’t have laughed, but I did.

I’d not realised how popular facial tattooing has become. It sets off missing teeth & a “If found please return to the pub” tshirt perfectly

“If found, please return to the pub.” One of the worst t-shirts ever, but I just saw a landlord in one. That sort of works, actually…

Today I admired the stubbornness of a man who remains unconvinced that his ‘If found, please return to the pub’ t-shirt has had its day.

I remember wearing a t-shirt when I was younger that said “if found please return to the pub” and thinking I was the dogs bollocks but I’ve definitely realised I looked a lot more like a little virgin

All I want for Christmas this year is a T-shirt with something like “If found please return to the pub” or “BEER LEGEND” on it. Is that too much to ask?
