Lord Kitchener (Woven Silk Issue) c1915
Anstie Military - General Series Lord Kitchener (Woven Silk Issue) c1915 Lord Kitchener (Woven Silk Issue) c1915 L1 - This is an image of Lord Kitchener printed on silk and set within a decorated oval with two British flags at the top. Lord Kitchener was a senior British army officer and colonial administrator who attained notoriety for his campaigns against the Boers in South Africa and for his role in the First World War. He was made Secretary of State for War at the start in 1914 and he is most famous as the face of recruitment posters for volunteers for the army which featured the slogan “Your Country Needs You”. At the time he was a popular figure, but after the war when the country faced up to the vast loss of life he became vilified. By then he was already dead having been killed following the sinking of HMS Hampshire in 1916. Modern historians looking back at his war service have gone some way to restoring his reputation, by pointing out that he had said from the start it would be a long war and had pointed out many of the difficulties as well as being a good organiser. This silk measuring 89 x 72mm would have adorned many a patriotic home during the First World War and it is well worth adding this little slice of history to your collection.

Gerard Military - General Series Modern Armaments unnumbered issue 1936 Modern Armaments unnumbered issue 1936 50 - When this set was first reviewed in our magazine C.C.N back in 1936 it was described as “very much of the moment and exceedingly interesting.” The review also stated that “the cards are the same size as Rothman’s series from the same period which is no surprise as by 1936 Louis Gerard Limited had become part of the Rothmans group”. This photographic series contains warships, aeroplanes, tanks, guns etc. with an explanatory title in the bottom white border. The backs are un-numbered with details of the issuer, title of the set and confirms that the subjects are “from actual photographs”, but sadly contains no information about the pictures. Among the subjects covered are an observation balloon, battle cruiser, anti-aircraft gun, firing a naval torpedo, a giant flying boat, a sound detector, giant submarine, heavy tank on manoeuvres, an aircraft carrier with planes on deck, night bomber, machine rifle, tanks in action, howitzers, field dress, searchlight apparatus and some grim reminders of the First World War such as troops in their trenches prepared for gas attack and erecting barbed wire. This was also produced as a numbered set. A fascinating series with cards size 65 x 39mm.
