Players Military & Armed Forces British Naval Craft 1939 British Naval Craft 1939 L25 - Produced by Players in 1939 from the paintings of Frank H. Mason R.I. The artwork is superb and the larger size really does it justice. A visible show of strength of the British Navy as we prepared to go to war the set includes some well-known ships and submarines, many of which didn’t come home such as HMS Egret which was the first ship sunk by guided missile in 1943, HMS Ark Royal, the submarine HMS Sunfish which was the victim of friend fire in 1944, HMS Exeter and battle cruiser HMS Hood which was sunk in 1941 with the loss of 1,418 men. The numbered backs contain a wealth of information concerning the vessel including when and where built, armaments, speed etc. We learn, for instance that to reduce weight HMS Arethusa had aluminium-covered plywood bulkheads, that HMS Nelson had steering gear of an unusual design which enabled the rudder to be swung over in 30 seconds and that the cost of HMS King George V which was only launched in 1939 was expected to exceed £8,500,000. A fitting tribute to all those heroes who battled both sea and enemy in the Second World War. Size 82 x 63mm.

Amalgamated Tobacco Military & Armed Forces British Uniforms of the 19th Century 1957 British Uniforms of the 19th Century 1957 25 - Whilst the 19th century saw great industrial and scientific innovations it is best remembered for the growth of the British Empire and by the end of this century Queen Victoria ruled over a vast area on which the sun never set. All this was only possible however due to her army who in the early years were taking on and subsequently defeating the French army under Napoleon and by the end were engaged in various conflicts in South Africa. This set pictures some of the uniforms worn by regiments over the century. All are drawn in colour against pastel backgrounds. Sadly there is no background information on the reverse, but the excellent pictures go some way to make up for this. This set was also produced by Direct Tea c1960, United Dairies in 1962, S.

Players Amazing Black Friday to Cyber Monday Deals Modern Naval Craft 1939 Modern Naval Craft 1939 50 - When this series was first issued and reviewed in our magazine Card Collectors News in March 1939 World War II was just a few months away and many of the vessels featured would soon be in action. In December “H.M.S. Exeter” (card no. 6) was one of the ships involved in the Battle of the River Plate against the German battleship “Admiral Graf Spee” (no. 24) and in May 1940 “H.M.S Warspite” (no. 2) created havoc at Narvik inflicting great damage to German defences. A year later the battle cruiser “H.M.S. Hood” (no. 4) was sunk by the “Bismarck” and only three of the crew of 1,400 survived. Three days later the “Bismarck” was herself destroyed after Swordfish torpedo bombers from “H.M.S Ark Royal” (no. 16) damaged her rudder enabling the pursing British forces to finish her off. The “Ark” met her demise in November 1941 when she was torpedoed by a U-boat off Gibraltar, then there was more bad news in December when “H.M.S. Prince of Wales” and “H.M.S. Repulse” (no. 5) were both sunk by Japanese aircraft off Malaya. Among those in the British section is a M.T.B, one of the small, fast 40-knot plus vessels which proved so versatile and effective, but the set also includes ships from the American, Japanese, French, Italian, U.S.S.R and German navies. The adhesive numbered backs contain plenty of information and the cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Teofani Military - General Series Past and Present Weapons of War 1938 Past and Present Weapons of War 1938 24 - 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.

Barratt Amazing Black Friday to Cyber Monday Deals Soldiers of the World 1966 Soldiers of the World 1966 50 - This set contains colour pictures of British, European and American soldiers in uniforms from the 18th century to the 1960s. Having said that over half of the set are British examples and most of these are from the 1960s. The numbered descriptive backs give regimental histories, battle honours and interesting facts. For instance we are told the French Foreign Legion wear a hat with sides known as a Kepi which offered protection against the hot North African sun. Interesting inclusions are a U.S. Military Policeman of the 1st Cavalry Division which was dismounted in 1942, a scruffy looking officer of Wurmser’s Free Corps., Austria 1793 who we are told has disregarded dress regulations, a French officer 1814 who’s uniform is described as the most elegant of all time, but not the most practical for action, a Prussian officer of Cuirassier Regiment No. 3 (1862) who’s helmet had a detachable silver eagle, a U.S. paratrooper from 1944, a private of the Gordon Highlanders, a WWII German infantry-man, a 1960s Trumpeter, King’s Troop of the Royal Horse Artillery, a Sergeant of the Glider Pilot Regiment formed in 1942 and a 1960s officer of the Royal Tank Regiment whose motto we are told is “Fear Naught”. An interesting set. Cards size 66 x 35mm. This set was also issued by Wiko with German text.

Walters Toffee Military & Armed Forces Some Cap Badges of Territorial Regiments 1938 Some Cap Badges of Territorial Regiments 1938 50 - This set was produced by Walters, one of the largest toffee manufacturers in the country, best known for their Palm Toffee brand which was so named as it had banana flavouring in it. These were issued just prior to World War II and picture the actual badges of the regiments against a yellow background and with the name of the regiment underneath. There is a comprehensive text on the reverse from which we learn that the Lovat Scouts were formed in 1900, fought at Gallipoli and have there headquarters in Inverness, the Cheshire Regiment achieved fame by attacking a force over twelve times their number in 1843, the Royal Army Medical Corps’ motto translates as faithful in hardship and that the searchlight battalions of the Royal Engineers are “now part of the air defences of Great Britain”. It is sad to think that only a short time later these defences would be put to the test. All the cards contain the words “published courtesy of the Royal United Service Museum” on the reverse. This is an excellent military set with cards size 69 x 36mm.

Ringtons Tea Military & Armed Forces British Cavalry Uniforms of the 19th Century 1971 British Cavalry Uniforms of the 19th Century 1971 25 - The title says it all really – these are colour drawings of cavalrymen in their uniforms which are set against a pastel background and whilst the uniforms are portrayed in all their detail they do look a little odd as only the saddle and flank of the horse is portrayed. Among those featured are an officer of the 2nd Life Guards from the Waterloo period, an 1905 officer of the 7th Queen’s Own Light Dragoons, a trooper (c1815) of the Royal North British Dragoons better known as the Scots Greys, a ‘Blues’ trooper of the Royal Horse Guards, a Life Guards officer in dress uniform as worn at the Coronation of King George IV, a 3rd (King’s Own) Light Dragons trooper of 1832, a trooper of the 13th Light Dragoons who formed part of the Light Brigade at Balaclava and a Sergeant of the 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons from 1896. The numbered backs give plenty of information on the regiments and these are well worth adding to any collection. This series was also issued by Badshah, Browne, Empson, Golden Grain and Willcocks and Willcocks with just the issuer’s name different. The cards are size 67 x 36mm

Gallaher Military & Armed Forces The Navy 1937 Park Drive back The Navy 1937 Park Drive back 48 - When this set was reviewed in “Cigarette Card News in 1937 it was described as “a most interesting issue covering practically every phase of the Navy’s activities, both as regards personnel and material. Examples of battleships, cruisers, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines and various small craft are given as well as numerous scenes depicting the routine of a seaman’s life” and indeed it is the behind the scenes look at the sailors’ lives which make this set so appealing. It was issued at a time when Britain was gearing up for the war that was to come and just three years later H.M.S. Warspite, pictured mooring on card no. 25 and in heavy seas on card no. 48, was in action at Narvik inflicting great damage on shore installations and sinking German ships. Then in May 1941 came the tragic demise of the battle cruiser Hood which was sunk by the Bismarck. There were only three survivors from the crew of 1,400. The Navy had its revenge when aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm (card 44) disabled the Bismarck’s rudder and the crippled ship was sunk by torpedoes from H.M.S. Dorsetshire. There is plenty of information on the card backs which have Park Drive Cigarettes at the bottom, but the set was also produced without this and just the company name. Cards size 63 x 37mm.

Oliver Military & Armed Forces Vehicles of the German Wehrmacht c1970 Vehicles of the German Wehrmacht c1970 M25 - As the title suggests this set contains black and white pictures of German military vehicles from the Second World War. Tony Oliver was a pioneer of military transport collecting and founder of the History on Wheels Motor Museum. All the vehicles featured were in his own collection and his expertise is evident in the detailed information on the card backs. Included are a Zündapp KS 600 motorcycle used from 1937 onward, the unusual N.S.U ‘Kettenkrad’ H.K. 101 semi-tracked motorcycle first used by airbourne troops in Crete, a Mercedes-Benz 170V light staff car, a Tatra 57K 4 x 2 vehicle produced in Czechoslovakia, the Volkswagen ‘Kubelwagen’ used in the Western Desert, the Volkeswagen ‘Schwimmwagen’ which was fully amphibious, the Tatra V809 favoured by Rommel’s Afrika Korps, a Mercedes-Benz LG300/LG63 radio truck, Opel ‘Blitz’ truck, Phänomen ‘Granit’ ambulance and typical field kitchen, with the last card picturing a selection of motor vehicle manufacturers marks or emblems. Size 76 x 51mm.

Carreras Military - General Series Britains Defences 1938 Britains Defences 1938 50 - On 30th September 1938 British Prime Minister Nevill Chamberlain returned from Munich to a tumultuous welcome with a document signed by Hitler say that we “bring peace with honour”. This was the same month that Carreras issued their series of 50 Britain’s Defences which includes many aspects of the operation of all three services. No doubt the Government made sure that our preparedness was put in the best light with emphasis on the most modern equipment – much of which was then in woefully short supply – without giving away any secrets to a potential enemy. The cards are exceptionally well-produced with excellent colour pictures backed by highly informative texts. Even today when we look back at this kind of set we can sense the unease about what the immediate future held in store. Fortunately, certain “ultra-modern developments” not included in the series were to tip the balance of war in our favour. These are well worth adding to any collection. Size 68 x 36mm.

Ardath Military - General Series Life in the Services 1938 Life in the Services 1938 50 - This set was issued just before the start of the Second World War and paints a somewhat glowing picture of life in the British services which we are sure many of those who took part in that conflict would dispute. The R.A.F for instance “offers all the advantages of a healthy, open-air existence”, the Royal Navy “security of employment, good pay and a varied and interesting life” and the Army “offers exceptional advantages such as foreign travel and liberal holidays. Well for many the foreign travel part was true, but the liberal holidays still awaited! These cards are all based on black and white photographs supplied by the War Department and were designed to show what a happy, active and rewarding life awaited recruits to the armed forces. Good clear pictures with comprehensive texts on the adhesive backs make this an interesting and historical set. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Morris Military - General Series Victory Signs 1928 Victory Signs 1928 50 - in March 1918, the German’s mounted their last desperate bid to break the British line, throwing half a million men against the 5th Army under General Sir Hubert Gough. This information is revealed on the back of card no. 2, on the front of which is a racing Red Fox with a white splash on its tail, the 5th Army’s distinguishing mark, chosen by General Gough a keen hunting man, when he took command. This is a truly fascinating series. Released in 1928, it is in effect a history of the British Army in the Great War, and not just the broad canvas, but down to the work of individual groups such as the Royal Engineer’s Tunnelling Company whose highly dangerous task it was to “dig vast mines under the enemy trenches at the end of the tunnels of great length lay tons of explosives and then blow them up.” The tunnellers’ distinguishing mark was a T superimposed on a triangle. All the marks were chosen to represent a particular attribute – the White and Red Rose of the 31st Division reflecting its make up as Lancashire and Yorkshire troops, the 38th Division comprised Ulstermen hence the Red Hand, the 9th (Scottish) Division a Thistle and so on.

Mitchell Military - General Series A Model Army 1932 A Model Army 1932 30 - This is an excellent set illustrating equipment and soldiers engaged in a variety of activities from bridge-building to the operation of anti-aircraft guns, plus a look at some of the famous regiments and their armaments. A novel touch is a push-out portion by which the cards can be made to stand up, hence the use of “model” in the title. Favourite pictures have to be the group of officers on active service and the anti-tank gun in action. Each subject is concisely described on the back and this is a must for anyone with an interest in military matters. The cards are size 67 x 36mm.

Drapkin Military - General Series Celebrities of the Great War Printed Back 1916 Celebrities of the Great War Printed Back 1916 36 - In 1916, the third year of World War I, Major Drapkin & Co. issued a series of 36 photocards known as “Celebrities of the Great War”. Needless to say these were all Allied leaders and include heads of state such as King George V, the Czar of Russia and the President of France, political leaders such as Prime Minister Asquith and South African Premier Botha, and several Indian Maharajas. The others are military men, among them Admirals Beatty and Jellicoe, General Haig and Field Marshalls French and Kitchener, the last-named being perhaps the best-known face of the war for his appearance on the “Your Country Needs You” recruitment posters. Also in the mix is Winston Churchill, at that time First Lord of The Admiralty. The card backs tell of the subjects’ careers and achievements and we learn that two were currently prisoners of the Germans. A wonderful souvenir of the war. Make sure you snap this up for your collection. Size 70 x 42mm
