Men Only / September 1951

Given recent events in the Crimea, this feels oddly timely, but of course it’s another part of the campaign that this ad comes from. By the way, I think the illustration is of hand grips on the Tube stock of the day, but it took me a couple of minutes to work it out!

Wikipedia tells me this spelling is still used in some regiments of the British army! My guess is that this spelling fell out of use soon after this ad, and that it’s probably not surprising that the rather old-fashioned Men Only of that time shows the older spelling.
