Sweetule Military & Armed Forces Naval Battles 1959 Naval Battles 1959 25 - This is an interesting idea for a set and one that must have provided a challenge to those in charge of illustration, but they have made a fine job of it and the colour pictures of ships in battle action are very well done. The set begins with a look at Romans against Carthaginians at time when ships required oarsmen to get them close enough to board each other. The romp through history continues with Drake’s fire-ships, the battle of Scheveningen in the war with the Dutch, the recapture of the ‘Hermione’, the capture of the ‘Serapis’ by John Paul Jones of the American navy, H.M. Brig Acorn chasing a slaver, Nelson’s flagship at Tragalgar, the ‘Shannon’ and Chesapeake in 1813, the Peruvian ‘Huascar’ which took on two Chilean ships, the battle of Santiago in the Spanish American War, the Battle of Jutland in the First World War and a number of cards featuring incidents in the Second World War including H.M.S ‘Warspite’ in action at Narvik, the torpedo of a Japanese cruiser off Singapore and the sinking of the German warship ‘The Bismarck’. There is plenty of information on the reverse about the naval action. This set was also issued by Amalgamated Tobacco c1958 and Glengettie Tea, Amaran Tea in 1971 and Hitchman Dairies in 1971. Colourful and educational so well worth adding to any collection. Cards size 67 x 36mm.
