    Hi James, I have never seen one of these before (only the odd single card), a great find. A fascinating insight into that period of Home Front war. Makes me laugh though that you could fall asleep in the sofa after smoking all those fags to collect the full album and burn your own house down without the help of the Luftwaffe!! Leon.

    A nice item James and rare to see a complete set in my experience. The home secs signature would be a facsimile.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    A nice item for "Home front" enthusiasts !!! .....
    Not an expensive item, but very evocative of the build up to war in the eyes of British public.
