The Battle of Britain Collector Cards from the late 1960’s.

Has as anyone got or seen any of these, we found them in an old keepsake box.
Not a full set and in used condition but interesting.

If if anyone has any information on them or knows what I might do with them,
I’d appreciate it thank you.

Nope… and if you want your logos, you’d better correct those sideways photos!

I’ve never heard of them but they look quite interesting

The Battle of Britain was one of the key episodes of WWII. Had the RAF not been able to thwart Goering’s Luftwaffe, the amphibious invasion of Britain surely would have followed. Hitler had the invasion force assembled and equipped, and the Brits were sure it was going to come. Even Winston Churchill was convinced they would have to fight on the “beaches and landing fields.” They Brits were very scared, and rightly so. It’s disturbing to imagine how history would have gone if that had happened.

Disguised as a crank-pot, LBD blended into the coffee grinder factory undetected ;0). Just teasing you, LBD.
On another note, as a history major, those cards are intriguing. I too would like to more about them. Do they markings on them I could research? Can’t read any of the writing on them.

At first research glance:

In 1969 A&BC Chewing Gum Ltd produced 66 cards in conjuction with the release of the film “The Battle of Britain” – which brought together many film stars like Laurence Olivier, Hein Riess, Trevor Howard, Robert Shaw, Christopher Plummer, Michael Caine, Edward Fox, Susannah York, Ian McShane, Kenneth More, Ralph Richardson, Patrick Wymark, Michael Redgrave, Curt Jürgens and Nigel Patrick.
