Goodies Flags, Arms & Maps Flags and Emblems 1961 Flags and Emblems 1961 25 - As the title suggests this set contains flags and emblems, but there are some unusual inclusions and arrangements in this set. For instance the first flag is that of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, who colours are made up of the blue of the ocean and a compass rose in a white circle signifying unity and peace. Also included is the S.H.A.P.E flag, the initials standing for Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers in Europe, the Admiralty flag, the flag of Trinity House who are responsible for all lighthouses and the flag of the Cinque Ports which is flown by the Lord Warden who at the time this set was issued by Winston Churchill. Also curious is the way badges are grouped together on one card, for instance Gibraltar and Malta are both shown on the last card, but they have nothing in common except they are both in the Med and why does Nepal have its own card, but Nigeria and Sierra Leone share a card? Also why Bolivia or Western Samoa but no Australia, America or New Zealand? Despite these puzzles this is a good set containing colourful cards with plenty of facts on the reverse. Size 68 x 36mm. This set was also issued in 1964 by Amaran Tea

Goodies Pop Stars & Singers The Monkees 1st Series 1967 The Monkees 1st Series 1967 25 - The Monkees were an American boyband formed in the 1960s for a TV series of the same name which aired between 1966 and 1968. The band were made up of Americans Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork and British actor and singer Davy Jones and the show followed their comic adventures as they tried to get famous. They produced a number of records in real life including “Last Train to Clarksville”, Daydream Believer” and “I’m a Believer” and were one of the most successful bands of the late 1960s. This set contains black and white pictures of them in action as well as close ups, many of which have copies of their signatures. The numbered backs suggest you could “find out more about Mickey, Peter, Mike and David by sending a stamped addressed envelope to Official Monkees Club (GB & Eire)” in Birmingham. A 2nd Series of these was later issued in1968. A lovely set sure to bring back memories with cards size 66 x 35mm.

We also learn that Bolivian girls go to church in white derby hats which were first made in England but are very popular over there. An interesting set with cards size 65 x 33mm.
