Battle of Britain A & B C Cards - 1969 Scanlens - 1969
Notes: These sets were issued following the release of the feature film of the same name. They show scenes from the film and fantastic shots of the ME109, Hurricane, and Spitfire fighters of World War II. The A&BC cards had orange borders and bear the caption "Daily Mirror," while the Scanlens version had yellow borders and the caption "London Daily Mirror." Thanks much to Ron Dowd for the checklist!
