Black box containing 52 playing cards, an information card and two Joker cards, the box is made from card and is printed on both sides with the British Army insignia (lion atop crown over crossed swords) with 'PLAYING CARDS' and 'Army Health Promotion' 'FIT FOR LIFE, FIT TO FIGHT' printed below in white. Inside the box, the information card lists the 'key messages to remember' and two Jokers list places where to get help and advice. The 52 playing cards are divided into Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs but each card is also printed with a health message such as 'Hands on Survival - Check for Lumps' 'Fit to Fight' and 'Don't be your own worst enemy!' and a caricature of members of army personnel in various amusing scenarios.
