So far only one slide is known from this set, and no contemporary catalogue or other references have yet been found. The set may cover more general military subjects, rather than just aircraft.

The earliest date for the set is based on the first flight of the Defiant aircraft featured in Slide 214; these aircraft were phased out of front-line service by around 1942.
