Prince of Wales National Relief Fund 1914

A two-pack patience set was produced by Thomas De la Rue & Co Ltd on behalf of the Prince of Wales National Relief Fund in 1914. The design consists of the Prince of Wales’s Feathers on a tinted background surrounded by a garter and patriotic design in gold, blue and red. The cards have either pink or light blue backgrounds and have a cambric surface which makes them easier to deal.

A column in the Daily Telegraph published on August 7th 1914 quotes the appeal from Buckingham Palace regarding the National Relief Fund
