I don't know how many different box backs there were; pretty much any of the transfers would go with this one, possibly apart from "Tiger Hunt":

Nick Symes asked me to identify this transfer sheet, & I'm afraid it took me a minute to realise what it was:

It's in a cellophane packet, although I don't know if that's the one it originally came in, since the protective tissue is missing.


Update 1:

It turns out that the above sheet belonged to Adrian Allen, who then sold it to the SPLAT Scan Archives — meaning we got to scan it out of its packet! — so here it is in its full glory. Thanks, Adrian.

Update 2:

After this, Martin Townsend very kindly sent me photos of the box (above) & eight of the ten transfer sheets from his late Father's collection. Since we already had "Gypsy Camp", here are the other seven; now we're only missing two.
