Design: A thin-looking upper half of a Union Jack. The angular ornamentation beneath the upper banner is very similar to that seen on the Albion label (right). The label name lettering is unevenly drawn, e.g. compare the two cap Rs.
History: Another of many labels manufactured in Germany for sale in pre-WWI Britain ('Invicta' is Latin for undefeated). In 1914 the label name was changed to Guardsman. Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
