Carreras A Special Offer of £2, £3 and £5 Sets Military Uniforms 1976 Military Uniforms 1976 50 - This set takes a look at British uniforms from 1860 to 1960 and provides a historical record of the changing times in the armed services. We see how breeches give way to trousers and the ornate braiding, gold edging and lace are gradually pared down. The set starts with a Musketeer of the King’s Royal Regiment of Guards in 1660 with his blue breeches and red gaiters and continues with an officer of the First Regiment of Foot Guards 1685, a Garde Te Voet in stunning blue and gold uniform who accompanied William of Orange when he succeeded to the British throne, a Private of the Grenadier Company 1791, a Sergeant of the Coldstream Regiment of Foot from the time of the American Revolutionary Wars, an 1812 Foot Guards Ensign carrying the regimental colour, a Light Company Officer of the Scots Fusilier Guards 1846, Coldstream Guards Drummer, a Grenadier Guards Pioneer of 1853 portrayed with apron and axe, 1853 Bandsman etc. Also included is a 1925 Subaltern wearing “plus fours” and puttees which had been adopted in the First World War, battle dress from 1950, kilts of the Irish and Scots Guards and No. 1 Dress of the Coldstream Guards of 1960. Good pictures with informative text on the reverse. An album was also issued to accompany this set. Size 69 x 36mm

In recognition of the role of our allies, the subjects include two Belgian, four French and four Russian, the remaining fifteen being British regiments among them The Black Watch, Durham Light Infantry, the Grenadier, Irish and Scots Guards, South Wales Borderers, The Royal Engineers and the Royal Field Artillery, each with a brief history on the back. (The set is minus the First Life Guards and The South Wales Borderers)

Churchman Military & Armed Forces The Navy at Work 1937 The Navy at Work 1937 M48 - The composition of the set was ideal for the period, presenting the navy as a modern well-trained and well-organised force offering interesting and varied careers, starting with boy entry at 15 through various trades up to warrant officer rank. Each black and white picture shows the man concerned carrying out a typical specialist task, whilst a small insert depicts his badge of rank. The text on the backs gives a full description of the various jobs to make you realise what a fantastic collection of skills are needed by a team manning a modern warship. Within two years, many of the men shown here going about their day-to-day lives on board would be at war, inspired perhaps by Nelson's famous signal 'England expects that every man will do his duty'.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
