United Kingdom Tobacco Amazing Black Friday to Cyber Monday Deals British Orders of Chivalry and Valour 1936 British Orders of Chivalry and Valour 1936 25 - Towards the end of 1936 United Kingdom Tobacco began issuing this series of 25 cards with their ‘Greys Cigarettes’ and our new issuers reviewer in early 1937 referred to them as “a most interesting and exceptionally well produced issue in full colour. A long time has elapsed since the last series on this subject and this set includes examples of the insignia and orders not included in older sets”. So we have here ancient orders such as the Most Noble Orders of the Garter, Thistle and Bath, Victorian orders such as the Star of India, Albert Medal, Royal Victorian Order and, of course, the Victoria Cross plus several more recent ones instituted by George V at the time of the Great War such as the O.B.E., Companions of Honour, Military Cross, Military Medal, D.F.C etc. The presentation is impeccable, the black background serving to emphasize the rich colours and the backs are packed with interesting information – for instance regarding the V.C. this was, we are told, “from 1920 also awarded to certain women and civilians”. We were surprised to read that the Order of Merit is “awarded to officers of both services” as surely in 1936 that should have been all three services? That said this is a splendid series peppered with anachronisms such as “now eligible to women” and “confined to 100 natives”, a reminder of the changes which have occurred in the many years since this set was issued. The backs are adhesive and the cards size 67 x 36mm.

United Kingdom Tobacco Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Set 4 (1933) Cinema Stars Set 4 (1933) 32 - This excellent set contains sepia photos of famous film stars from the 1930s who include Carole Lombard, George Raft, Jean Harlow, Tarzan star Johnnie Weissmuller, Ronald Colman, Bette Davis, heart-throb Clark Gable, Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich. There is a wealth of information on the numbered card backs, for instance we are told that 5ft 5inch tall Katherine Hepburn began on the New York stage but was spotted by executives of RKO-Radio and immediately given a contract or that Clark Gable worked as a lumberjack before making it big in Hollywood. This set was also produced by Abdulla & Co. Limited around the same time. A lovely set for any movie lover with cards size 67 x 37mm.
