Life in the Services 1938
Ardath Military - General Series Life in the Services 1938 Life in the Services 1938 50 - This set was issued just before the start of the Second World War and paints a somewhat glowing picture of life in the British services which we are sure many of those who took part in that conflict would dispute. The R.A.F for instance “offers all the advantages of a healthy, open-air existence”, the Royal Navy “security of employment, good pay and a varied and interesting life” and the Army “offers exceptional advantages such as foreign travel and liberal holidays. Well for many the foreign travel part was true, but the liberal holidays still awaited! These cards are all based on black and white photographs supplied by the War Department and were designed to show what a happy, active and rewarding life awaited recruits to the armed forces. Good clear pictures with comprehensive texts on the adhesive backs make this an interesting and historical set. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.
