During the early years of World War II, the World Wide Gum Company, Montréal, Québec, Canada (aka Goudey Gum Canada) issued the following four wartime series of trading cards: (1) Aviation Chewing Gum (V401-1), (2) Aviation Series (V401-2), (3) Marine Gum (V403), and (4) Victory Gum (V406). All four of theses sets feature military artwork plus descriptive text in both English and French.

The initial Aviation Chewing Gum (V401) series was subsequently complemented with a series of 10 premium issue cards. These 10 cards were known as the “Aviation Gum Premiums”, and are listed in the American Card Catalog as reference number V402. The cards feature brown sepia images of 10 different World War II British combat aircraft. The cards are numbered 1 to 10. Later, the “Big Three Series Premiums ” of 10 cards became and extension of the series, and these blue sepia cards were numbered 11 through 20. This series contains one tank, one Canadian built Corvette, and eight aircraft.
