Cavalry Card Game - 1930s


This educational card game was intended to teach children "the names and numbers of the British cavalry regiments". The cards are illustrated with the various regiments, and the instructions note that: "It is taken for granted that the players know that there are seven Dragoon Guard Regiments". Players compete through drawing and exchanging cards to complete sets of the regiments, with the player completing the most regiments winning.

This example is double cased in hard card with the original rules. Made by the International Card Company of London in the 1930s. 


The set is complete but with repairs to the box. Grade 3 under Hoyle's VintageGrading System (see here).
