Cope Military - General Series The Worlds Police 1935 (reprint 2005) The Worlds Police 1935 (reprint 2005) 25 - This set was originally issued in 1935. This set faithfully reproduces the colour pictures but the backs are printed in black instead of blue. Some things haven’t changed much, the text for the Palestine constable says of the Arabs and Jews “both denominations resort to violence in an effort to settle their age old quarrel”, whilst for Iraq we learn “the population is prone to violence”. Size 69 x 36mm.

British American Tobacco (without firms name) Military - General Series Drum Horses 1910 (reprint 2001) Drum Horses 1910 (reprint 2001) 32 - Originally produced in 1910 and reprinted in 2001 these colour cards picture drum horses and their riders from different regiments. It must surely take a long time to train a horse to cope with large drums being played from its back and we see some prime examples in this set which includes drum horses of the Mounted Band of the Royal Artillery, the Royal Horse Guards, 2nd Dragoons Royal Scots Greys, 5th Royal Irish Lancers, 9th Queen’s Royal Lancers, 11th Prince of Albert’s Own Hussars and the 21st Empress of India’s Lancers. The regiment is given on the front and the backs are blank save for the number, title and ornate card surround. A fine set with cards size 68 x 36mm.

Teofani Military - General Series Past and Present Weapons of War 1938 (reprint 2001) Past and Present Weapons of War 1938 (reprint 2001) 24 - These are reprints of the set originally produced in 1938 The subjects are \'paired\' with an example from the past being followed by one from the present - that is 1938. It is amazing how close the analagies are. Even the tank had its prototype in the \'Tortoise\' of the Middle Ages the only difference being an improvement in mechanical effectiveness. Obviously there have been many further advances in weaponry in the seventy years or so since these cards were issued and the excellent colour pictures and informative texts have the additional interest of allowing us to compare present-day armaments with what was state of the art in 1938. Size 68 x 37mm.

The fronts contain a series of colour posters of classy artwork cajoling civilians to join the war effort in various guises such as The Women’s Land Army, A.T.S., Wrens, R.A.F., Pioneer Corps., National Fire Service etc. Some of the slogans would not be politically correct these days and the R.A.F. poster features what looks like a World War I dogfight and not a spitfire in sight. This standard size set is also available in a large format and is 68 x 37mm.

Lime Rock (USA) Military - General Series Heroes of The Persian Gulf 1991 Heroes of The Persian Gulf 1991 LT110 - As revealed on the very last card, this series is rather different from what the title would have us believe. In fact to quote from the cards “Heroes of the Persian Gulf cards are a celebration of American military technology.” What we have here are aircraft, ships, missiles and military hardware in general, with hardly a soldier in sight, and of course, no mention of the part played by Britain or the allies. Nevertheless this is a very good set. Size 89 x 64mm.

Dart (USA) Military - General Series Vietnam Series 2 1991 Vietnam Series 2 1991 LT100 - Perhaps not America’s finest period of history, U.S. involvement in the affairs of Vietnam can be traced back to the Cold War of the 1950s when President Kennedy pledged to stem the spread of communism. What followed is well documented in this card set showing action, military hardware and main political players, Nixon, Johnson, Ho Chi Minh etc. The final card puts the whole sorry sage into context. It shows the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington commemorating the names of more than 57,000 Americans killed in the conflict. Size 89 x 64mm.

The war in Europe is featured less comprehensively, concentrating on the American contribution. There are also sections dealing with war propaganda posters, key aircraft from both sides, war leaders including Hitler and Tojo and U.S. Commanders. J.F. Kennedy is also pictured in navy lieutenant’s uniform; his PT boat was rammed and sunk by a Japanese destroyer. The texts are excellent. Size 89 x 64mm.
