Brylcream in the Handy Active Service Tube. You needn't miss your daily Brylcreem because you are on active service. You can take this famous hair dressing with you in the handy-to-pack tube. Just a squeeze every morning and your hair is "O.K." for the day and protected against the ravages of the tin hat too.

The model in this picture is Tony Gibson, which is ironic as when this ad appeared he was in prison as a conscientious objector! He was an anarchist and psychologist -- see the entry in Wikipedia for more information
