Lord Kitchener of Khartoum
With Sudanese he overcame
With sudden ease GLOBE does the same!
Let rivals rave and scorners scoff
Just rub it on and rub it off!
Then Helmets, Buttons, brilliant shine:
"GLOBE POLISH" wins along the line!
An early advertising card found amongst my father's collection.
On the reverse it says:
Ask for "GLOBE-TAB" and see that you get it.
The "GLOBE-TAB" is infinitely the Best and Cheapest POLISHING TABLET ever introduced for the Army and Navy. It is unequalled for imparting a DAZZLING BRILLIANCY to all kinds of metal and is highly recommended for MILITARY BUTTONS and similar uneven surfaces.
ONE PENNY per large tablet (nearly twice the usual size.
N.B. For ordinary surfaces such as helmets, band instruments, we recommend the GLOBE METAL POLISH in TINS.
Sold at all the canteens and military stores.
I haven't been able to find any information whatsoever about "GLOBE-TAB". It seems to have vanished off the face of the earth.
