Lambert & Butler Aviation & Space Aeroplane Markings 1937 Aeroplane Markings 1937 50 - Described as “colour depictions of the distinctive markings of fifty countries illustrated on the plane in correct colours. Very well produced and the first of its kind, making it very desirable to the aviation enthusiast” in our card magazine in April 1937 this was not quite correct as only forty-four countries are represented as some such as the U.S.A and Britain having two or more illustrations. The importance of being able to identify an aircraft’s nationality was particularly important during times of war. For instance in WWI the R.A.F’s roundel had to be adopted in preference to the Union Jack following confusion with the German Iron Cross in poor visibility and even in today’s hi-tech world cases of mistaken identify can cost lives. It may be that the Ministry of Information had a hand in getting this set produced as swift recognition of friend or foe would be essential in the run up to World War II. Anyway, this set clearly displays the wing and rudder markings of aircraft of countries arranged alphabetically from Argentina to Yugoslavia. The texts give useful background information. For instance of the Spanish Air Force we learn that “after the fall of the monarchy in 1931 the central circle of the wing marking and the bottom band of the rudder marking were changed from purple to red., but since the outbreak of the 1936 revolution two opposing air forces have been brought into being, the markings of which undoubtedly vary.”. Card size 68 x 36mm.

Anglo Confectionery Aviation & Space Space 1967 Space 1967 LT66 - Produced ten years after the space age began with the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, is Anglo Confectionery’s series of 66 Space, compiled by L .J. Carter, a Fellow of The British Interplanetary Society. As such, the texts are full and authoritative in their descriptions of developments in space exploration to accompany the pictures from NASA and a variety of other sources.Here’s an extract from one of the cards : the tracking station at Robledo is so powerful it could detect the light coming from a Christmas tree bulb 22 million miles away. In a prophetic statement we are told “Pluto marks the outer limit of our Solar System, but who knows, there may be other even more distant worlds still undiscovered lying in the depths of space.” And sure enough, in 2002, Quaoar, half the size of Pluto was discovered, followed in 2003 by Xena, bigger than Pluto – and astronomers believe there could be hundreds of similar ‘planets’ out there. Size 89 x 64mm
