Churchman Reprinted Series Story of Navigation 1936 (CCS reprint 1999) Story of Navigation 1936 (CCS reprint 1999) 50 - When Queen Mary launched the new Cunard liner which bore her name in September 1934 it was like a tonic for a nation emerging from the long years of the depression. The superb vessel marked the latest chapter in a struggle to conquer the sea, a story which had begun thousands of years earlier when primitive man first crossed a river by floating on a log. It was these two extremes which Churchmans chose for the first and last cards in this series. The set continues with a Welsh coracle, a Viking ship and an Elizabethan galleon as well as Nelson’s flagship “Victory” which is now preserved at Portsmouth for all to admire. Also included are the magnificent clipper “Cutty Sark” which is still a major tourist attraction at Greenwich, “S.S. Great Britain” which is permanently on display in Bristol as a lasting tribute to Isambard Kingdom Brunel her talented designer plus great liners of the 20th century such as “Mauretania” which for more than 20 years was the speed queen of the North Atlantic and of course, the “Queen Mary” which is now a tourist attraction at Long Beach, California. You can re-live these great moments in maritime history with this finely produced colour series with plenty of facts on the reverse. These cards are size 67 x 36mm. This set was originally printed in 1936.

Ogdens Reprinted Series Story of the Lifeboat c1950 (without Ogdens) (reprint 2001) Story of the Lifeboat c1950 (without Ogdens) (reprint 2001) 50 - This set of 50 cards is unusual in that although technically a reprint it is not marked as such. This is because although prepared for Ogdens this set was never printed. The colour pictures on the fronts cover everything relating to lifeboats, from Lt. Col. Sir William Hillary the founder of the Life-boat Service to famous Coxswains, including some of the boats, pictures of actual rescues, even diagrams and pictures of how things work. The backs contain comprehensive information on the subject and a mini black and white storm picture at the bottom. Size 68 x 36mm.

Mitchell Reprinted Series First Aid 1938 (CCS reprint 2001) First Aid 1938 (CCS reprint 2001) 50 - These monochrome cards with informative backs, originally issued in 1928, were designed to be stored in a medicine chest where we are told they would prove invaluable in the case of an emergency. The cards take us through basics such as equipment for a first aid kid and how to tie various slings and bandages, but then get\\\\r\\\\nserious as we are shown an x-ray of a fracture and encouraged to use household items including golf clubs, umbrellas and broom handles as splints. We are advised not to move the patient until the splint is secured, but frankly I would have thought it ambitious to move a patient with a fractured thigh or kneecap no matter how well splinted. We then learn how to approach an electric shock victim, treat choking, scalds, remove foreign bodies from ears and eyes, remove fish hooks from hands and what to use as antidotes to common poisons, then he last card graphically shows a lady on fire. A useful but somewhat scary set! Size 68 x 36mm.
