Prosser asks "I have a few older
cards from a set of 50 Royal Canadian Navy Ships from Morse's tea and
Coffee Halifax. I don't know anything about them. What can you tell me?"
Answer: Well Robert, I used to
think they issued two series, RCN Ships and RCN Aircraft. With just some
of the cards in the series to go by, who could blame me. I did eventually
pick up an album for the cards and it explained a lot. Of course you know
that Morse's Tea and Coffee offers the series. The series is called
"Royal Canadian Navy". The album says it was offered during the
50th anniversary of the RCN's existence. It began in 1910 so that makes
the cards circa 1960. Every image on the cards comes from the Royal
Canadian Navy itself. Of course, on the backs of the cards you can
determine that there are 50 in the series and that Morse is out of
are an "Aircraft" and "Ships" card side by side.
