British Butterflies not Thanksgiving Turkeys

This unused Raphael Tuck & Sons "Aquarette" Postcard from the Butterflies and Moths Series II is from 1918.

The artist R J Wealthy appears to be more well known - at least on ebay - for his Thanksgiving Turkey postcards. The butterflies on this one are:

i. Small Tortoiseshell
ii. Swallowtail
iii. Chalk Hill Blue (Male)
iv. Small Skipper (Male)
v. Camberwell Beauty
