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.

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.

Victoria Gallery Fish, Fishing & the Ocean Deep Sea Diving 1997 Deep Sea Diving 1997 50 - These cards tell the story of man’s attempts to explore the underwater world from the Victorian era through to World War II. Amazingly the twelve-bolt helmet invented by Augustus Siebe in 1837 remained in production until 1975! The set covers all manner of diving things including life-saving breathing apparatus and a recompression chamber, communication underwater, diving pumps, airlocks and salvage operations including that on HMS Gladiator which was sunk in the Solent in 1908. There is plenty of fascinating information on the card backs including the harrowing fact that divers working on the reclamation of the Gladiator in the pitch black and confined spaces had to shoulder aside the corpses of the sailors in order to close the watertight doors so she could be pumped out. Riveting stuff. Cards size 68 x 36mm

Dominion Tobacco Ships & Shipping Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 25 - Dominion Tobacco was taken over by the Godfrey Phillips group in 1941, but during its short period of independence this London-based company produced four series all featuring old ships. This set is the 2nd Series which covers Naval ships from the late 17th to late 19th Centuries. The black and white drawings show the vessels in intricate detail, but it is the backs that supply the greatest interest because they reveal so many intriguing stories about those troubled times. For example, the French 74-gunner “Terrible” was captured by Hawke and added to the Royal Navy, the name later being given to a new cruiser built in 1895. The French 84-gunner “Franklin”, built in 1796, was captured in the Battle of the Nile and became H.M.S “Canopus”, but she was so fast that the British built ten ships to the same design between 1821 and 1832 and “Canopus” herself was still in service in 1850. Then there was H.M.S “Bellerophon” upon which Napoleon was brought to England after the battle of Waterloo, arriving at Torbay on July 24th 1815. The card tells us “She was surrounded by sight-seers who dared everything to catch a glimpse of Napoleon and if they succeeded the air was rent with cheers”. Fascinating stuff. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Phillips Ships & Shipping Ships That Have Made History 1938 Ships That Have Made History 1938 M36 - The artwork in this set is impressive, full of colour and detail. You get a real sense of choppy waves and wind in the sails. Beginning with an ancient Egyptian ship the set continues with a Roman War Galley, a Viking ship of the 9th century, ships of discovery like the ‘Santa Maria’ used by Columbus, Vasco de Gama’s ‘Raphael’, John Cabot’s the ‘Mathew’, Drake’s ‘Golden Hind’, the ‘Mayflower’ used to transport the Pilgrim Fathers to America, Captain Cook’s ‘Endeavour, the ‘Discovery’ used to transport Scott to the Antarctic etc., the there are old warships like ‘Henri Grace A Dieu’, ‘Ark Royal’, ‘Revenge’, the ‘Centurion’, the ‘Victory’ etc. and notable ships like the infamous HMS ‘Bounty’, the steam and sail paddle-ship ‘Savanah’, Brunel’s ‘Great Eastern, the clipper ‘Cutty Sark’, the world famous ‘Titanic’ which sunk in 1912, a ‘”Q” ship developed in the First World War which were fighting ships masquerading as merchant shipping, HMS ‘Hood’ which was sunk 1941 with huge loss of life, and liners the ‘Normandie’ and ‘Queen Mary’. The picture of the ‘Normandie’ is particularly fine as it shows other vessels in the vicinity, so you get a sense of scale. A fine set which is backed by informative text. Size 60 x 53mm

Dominion Tobacco Ships & Shipping Old Ships 3rd Series 1936 Old Ships 3rd Series 1936 25 - The Dominion Tobacco Company (1929) Ltd issued just four series of cards, all of which were of old ships. This is the third of these, dating from 1936, and it illustrates vessels from Roman times through to the 20th century with some impressively detailed artwork reproduced in a rather drab green colour. The backs are a rich source of maritime history – for example the text relating to Sir Francis Drake’s flagship “Golden Hind” not only gives commonly-known information about his famous voyage, Queen Elizabeth and all that. It also points out that the ship started out as the “Pelican” but Drake changed its name and that after Drake received his knighthood attempts were made to preserve such a famous ship, a trench being dug into the river bank at Deptford into which she was hauled, but she fell to pieces some forty years later. The final three cards picture twentieth century liners “Doric”, “Olympic” and Blue Riband holder “Mauretania”. Coincidentally, all three had been scrapped in 1935. Size 68 x 36mm

Churchman Ships & Shipping Life in a Liner 1930 Life in a Liner 1930 25 - This contains colour pictures of rooms aboard different liners whose names are given on the front and there are a mixture of functional rooms like the engine room or kitchen, 2nd and 3rd class rooms and of course the glamorous deluxe accommodation of the super-rich. The swimming pool on the “Franconia” and the smoking room on the “Bermuda” look decidedly masculine with dark wood and heavy furniture, by contrast the playroom on the “Melita” despite being for third class passengers is bright and airy with expensive looking toys. You can also compare the luxury of a private suite on the “Empress of Australia” with the cramped third-class cabin on the “Melita. The card featuring the ‘cabin de luxe’ on the “Cathay” tells us that accommodation on long-distance services to India and Australia was usually less luxurious than on the North Atlantic routes, but was specially adapted for the climate with inconspicuous ventilators keeping the cabin cool and pleasant. We loved the picture of the laundry room on the “Empress of France” which clearly employed a lot of women, but our favourite drawing is of the Palm Court on the “Berengaria” in which you could imagine characters from an Agatha Christie novel enjoying their afternoon tea.

Hill Ships & Shipping Famous Ships Front varnished 1940 Famous Ships Front varnished 1940 50 - When these cards appeared in 1940 we described them as “a fine series produced in colour and full of interest at the present time. Fighting ships are well represented by such vessels as the Hood and the new aircraft carrier Illustrious. Commercial craft include crack liners such as the Queen Elizabeth and the now notorious Bremen. There are historic ships such as the Mayflower and the Victory, and vessels, which took part in the 1914-18 conflict. Altogether a valuable contribution to maritime history”. Also here is the ill-fated Lusitania and the Titanic. The Hood would join them in the ocean depths when she was sunk in 1942. The Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary were to end their days in Hong Kong and California. The Cutty Sark at Greenwich and the Victory at Portsmouth are reminders of Britain’s maritime heritage, as indeed is this fine set of cards. This set was also issued with a matt front. Size 63 x 38mm
