1916 Wills Military Motors trading cards highlighted the finest machines in the British army during World War I. This set of 50 trading cards was distributed in packs of Wills cigarettes and each card comes in two different versions. One version includes the text, “Passed for publication by the Press Bureau 21-9-16” on the bottom border of the card and the other version was released without that text.

Each card front featured a full-color illustration and the back of the card gave a detailed description of the vehicle presented on the front. Collectors should beware that a reprint of this set was released in 1994 but the reprint set only has the “Passed for publication…” variant.
