No Smoking Please!





I dont smoke and neither does my other half, but i certainly do collect cigarette packs of the yesteryears.In fact i have a whole stack of them.Most of these cigarette packs were made by the legendry W.D & WILLS company based in Bristol and London and shipped to the old Malaya.They came in a pack of 5s or 10s.Other notable companies involved in supplying cigarettes were Modern Tobacco Co.,M.C.L Co.Ltd,The British American Tobacco Company,Godfrey Phillips,Lambert & Butler,R&J Ltd,Gallaher,James Carlton London, etc.There were also locally produced cigarettes by the Malayan Cigarette Co,Malayan Tobacco Co,Poh Tar Co Penang,Joo Lan Tobacco Co,Nanyang Brothers Etc.The Packs came in various brand names such as Torchlight,Rough Rider(very popular),Craven A,Capstan,Pirate,Sea Rider etc.The list is endless.There were  even certain cigarette brands issued during the emergency period in Malaya and also during World War.
