Following the first two designs in 1914 and 1915, a third design, featuring the King’s head on the obverse (front) was soon under way. These were the first national notes to be printed on both sides. The £1 note had a picture of the Houses of Parliament on the reverse whilst the 10/- note had a simple design featuring the denomination within a fancy pattern. The notes were issued on 22nd January 1917 (£1) and 22nd October 1918 (10/-). The first and second issues ceased to be legal tender on 12th June 1920.
