This set can be found with three different cigarette ads on the back. These are "Officer's Mess Cigarettes" (African Tobacco Co.), There is always satisfaction in a Guernsey made Cigarette" (Bucktrout), and "Indo Egyptian Cigarette Company, Cheribon." OMBI stands for Officers Mess, Bucktrout, Indo Egyptian Cigarette Company.

It looks like the checklist for the Indo Egyptian set is a bit different from the others. Steve Schloeder reports that #34 shows Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle instead of Nigel Barrie.

The photos from this set were taken from xerox copies, so the actual coloring of these cards will look different from the scans. These cards are sepia color. Thanks to Bob Richardson for providing the information to start this checklist and to Steve Schloeder for additional checklist help.
