To combat this threat an organization known as SHADO is formed (which stood for Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) with bases on the moon and on Earth.

Rospa Motoring Veteran Cars 1st Series 1955 Veteran Cars 1st Series 1955 24 - In 1956 motorists calling at Cleveland garages could collect a card with every gallon of petrol purchased, ironically just before the Suez crisis led to petrol rationing. The cards concerned, were from a series of 24 Veteran Cars produced by the Royal Society for The Prevention of Accidents, showing colour photographs of motors built between 1902 and 1916, from the early De Dion Bouton of which the text tells us 'more of this make of veteran car survive in this country than any other', through to a prototype Morris-Cowley whose 'engine was made by the Continental Motor Manufacturing Co. of Detroit, U.S.A.' Many unusual pieces of information can be gleaned from these backs, which also contain a section headed 'To drivers of motor vehicles' giving legal and Highway Code information. Size 67 x 36mm

Sinclair Dogs and Pets Champion Dogs 1st Series 1938 Champion Dogs 1st Series 1938 54 - This lovely set contains black and white photos of Cruft’s prize-winning pooches with their name given on the front and the informative backs giving us details of their bloodline, wins, owners etc. It has to be said that some of their names are rather silly like the Dachshund called Fernwood Radio, the Scottish Terrier called Heather Realisation or the poor Poodle who has had the indignity of having his rear end shorn of hair and is then named Stillington Jeremie. He was four times time champion so perhaps we shouldn’t feel too bad for him. Joking aside this set is full of wonderful examples of different breeds including a superior looking small Aghan Hound called Shah Shuja of Guefron who appears on two cards in the set, a Golden Retriever owned by the hon. Mrs D. Carnegie called Heydown Guider, the adorably named Kerry Blue Terrier Hell-of-A-Fellow, a Bull Terrier called Brendon Bang, a vey hairy Old English Sheepdog called Bouncer of Pickhurst, the grandly named King Charles Spaniel Ashtonmore Barritone and a Springer Spaniel known as Roundwood Lass. A must for any dog lover with cards size 68 x 36mm. This set was also issued as a larger size series size 76 x 64mmwith some of the pictures slightly different.

Bucktrout (Guernsey) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Inventors Series 1924 Inventors Series 1924 20 - Visitors to Guernsey in the Channel Islands may be familiar with the firm of Bucktrout & Co whose premises in St. Peter Port is a mecca for wine buffs, but before the war they also made their own brands of cigarettes in association with the Guernsey Tobacco Company, an offshoot of British American Tobacco. This set is among several series issued in the 1920s and was basically the same as R & J Hill’s 1907 series of Inventors and Their Inventions, using the same colour pictures and descriptive text, but with “Bucktrout & Co. Ltd, manufacturers of all the famous Guernsey-made cigarettes” on the backs together with “Keep this card. The number on it may prove of advantage to you”. This was a reference to numerals over-printed on some cards in connection with a prize scheme. Among the worthies in this set are Pierre Curie (radium), Samuel Morse (electric telegraph), Santos Dumont (airship), Humphrey Davy (safety lamp), Thomas Edison (phonograph), Robert Stephenson (engineer), Hiram Maxim (maxim gun), George Stephenson (first locomotive) and Guglielmo Marconi (wireless telegraph), but no women! If such a series were compiled today we wonder how many of these pioneers would be included, but this is a fascinating set backed by plenty of information and well worth adding to any collection. Cards size 68 x 38mm.
