Guardsman Record

1914 - 1928


Established 1914, Guardsman Records were a successor to Invicta records.

In 1922, Vocalion took over the pressing and, using their own masters and those from Gennett & Vocalion, continued the label until 1928.

The label artwork was taken from a painting by Francis Barraud of Lieutenant Hassell.

The early numbers (prior to about 350) would originally have been issued as 'Invicta' records, but may have been kept available in the catalogue once the Guardsman label took over.

In addition to the normal 10" series, there were 12" records in a 2000- series.
