MISS AND MASTER TOMMY ATKINS, c.1910

The two images above are playing cards drawn from a set called ‘Funny Families’, dating from approximately 1910.

Identified as ‘Miss Tommy Atkins the Soldier’s Daughter’ and ‘Master Tommy Atkins the Soldier’s Son’, the family group is completed by two further cards representing their parents.

‘Mr. Tommy Atkins the Soldier’ and ‘Mrs. Tommy Atkins the Soldier’s Wife’.

These imaginary army children are depicted stereotypically, playing soldiers: Miss Tommy Atkins, with her sword drawn, marches past a line of toy soldiers standing at attention, while Master Tommy Atkins prepares to fire a toy cannon.
