Lingford Military - General Series British War Leaders 1950 British War Leaders 1950 36 - This set is an excellent production both pictorially and for its historic descriptive detail, and it is the definitive World War II card series – all the more impressive for having been issued just five years after the war ended, during a period of austerity and rationing. We are referring to “British War Leaders” issued by Joseph Lingford & Son with their baking powder, pudding mixtures, cornflower, jellies and blanc-mange. Each of the thirty-six men in the set played a vital part in securing victory. They include Battle of Britain chief Hugh Dowding, Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris C-in-C of Bomber Command, Leigh-Mallory commander of Allied air operations on D-Day (he died in an air-crash in France in 1944), Louis Mountbatten Supreme Allied Comander S.E. Asia (assassinated by the IRA in 1979), Bernard Montgomery and, of course, Winston Churchill war-time Prime Minister and leader of the opposition when these cards came out. This set is a must for every collection. Size 68 x 36mm

A & B C Military - General Series Civil War News 1965 Civil War News 1965 L88 - This is an educational and informative set for adults and children alike telling the story of the American Civil war taking us from tension between the North and South in 1859 to the start of war in April 1861 to Lee’s surrender in 1865. The colour pictures on the front depict scenes such as the destruction of 125 rebel soldiers in a train wreck at Chattanooga and a battle by battle report from places like Fredericksburg or Manassas whilst the backs tell the story in the form of a newspaper report. You get a real sense of the progress of the war, the cost to human life and the success and failure of each side in this brutal conflict. The last card contains a checklist. This is an impressive set with cards size 80 x 57mm
