The popularity of cigarette cards grew during the 1920s and 1930s. Many of the sets issued during this time were reissues of earlier series with a timeless appeal. Drum Banners & Cap Badges (September 1924), Military Head-Dress (March 1931), and British Military Uniforms presented by Mornflake Oats are typical series based on historical themes. In the 1930s, as the signs of approaching conflict became more intense, themes with a military flavor took on an increasingly important role. There were those that emphasized knowledge and awareness of wartime matters, such as Uniforms of the Territorial Army, issued by John Player & Sons in October 1939. In 1940 cigarette cards were officially banned by the British wartime government as an unnecessary and wasteful use of raw materials. The issuing of cigarette cards was not widely revived following World War II, perhaps because of the cost.

This set of 13 cards from the Drum banners and Cap badges series are in very good condition. I have the following numbered cards: 3, 4, 10, 15,18, 19, 23, 24, 26, 31, 43, 46 and 47. The cards have no tears or creases; the corners are not bent. The cards show very minimal wear. This series of cards are circa 1924. Please look carefully at all of the photos.
