From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Typical Army Club advertising.

Army Club was a brand of cigarette distributed by Cavanders Ltd of London that was established in 1775.

Advertising campaigns for this brand adopted the themes of nostalgia of wartime camaraderie and male culture.

In the 1920s these cigarettes were sold in elaborate tins made of pressed copper.

Cavanders was a cigarette company originally based in Manchester, and the brand disappeared in 1961, as the company was taken over by the Godfrey Philips cigarette company. Godfrey Philips exists today and the main factory is now in Mumbai.

In popular culture

An Army Club cigarette packet was famously found at the murder scene of the Taman Shud Case.
