Wills' Ships' Crest Cigarette Cards
Here we have a full set made up of 50 original cigarette cards issued by W. D. & H. O. Wills of Bristol and London in 1925. The set, which would have been collected individually from 50 packets of cigarettes, are all different with the crest printed in full colour and the motto detailed below. On the reverse of the cards is some background information on the individual ship including name, class, tonnage, armour and date of launch. Many famouse vessels of the Royal Navy are detailed including HMS Hood, Argus, Vindictive and Repulse. The set comes in a display folder but would benefit from being framed and glazed.
