Here's my latest cinderella purchase. These Edmund Dulac designed Daily Mail and Evening News Red Cross Fund poster stamps are large format. I think originally these were all joined in one block and were issued as War Bond Stamps.

Although not in pristine condition, they do have their original gum:

I don't know if these are usually quite difficult to find as a set but I'm very pleased to have spotted them.

Maybe Londonbus1 will know something about these.

There seems to be no specific date attached to these, as far as a quick internet search goes, and 1914-1915 may be as near as we can get. Dulac published a book for the French Red Cross in 1915, while artist Frank Brangwyn designed Red Cross 'stamps' for the Evening News in 1914, printed by the same firm.

Strangely I can find none of these at the moment; just everything else by him.

I believe the Dulac Charity Stamps were issued Se-Tenant, I only have 3 Evening News singles. The other stamps mentioned were printed that way as you can see below.

The Avenue Press were the Official printing company for British Rail at the time but apart from these 2 issues could not find out if they delved further into the printing of Philatelic matter.

These are never easy to find and most often come at a price. The Chatfield Catalogue lists the Daily Mail and Evening News issues separately although they were clearly printed together, or at least at the same time. But no issue dates or quantities are known.

The Daily Mail and Evening News were owned by the Harmsworth brothers (later Lords) at the time and the Mail in particular had a reputation for being, let's say, overly Patriotic. Hence the rather gory set by Frank Brangwyn ! By the way, he designed other WWI Charity Stamps.

Now I am after the rest of the set shown by Ningpo when I get to London !!

Londonbus1......it never ends ! Big Grin

re: GB: Edmund Dulac designed cinderella issue from WWI

The Daily Mail today is considered by some( especially those of a left-wing bent) to be somewhat to the right of Attila The Hun ! - so it appears that little has changed as a result of change of ownership. It was a hysterical supporter of Brexit, and some of it's editorials are of interest to conspiracy theorists.
(Tongue very firmly in cheek).

Having said all that it occasionally does crusade on quite important matters ( the use of mobile phones while driving being one recent valuable example).
