Weet-Bix Card Sets

Weet-Bix is an Australian breakfast cereal.

Weet-Bix tastes better from a box that has cards in it. That's a fact Sanitarium need to digest.
In the good old days even the smallest box on the supermarket shelf had a card in it.
Why Sanitarium doesn't think putting cards in Weet-Bix on regular basis is great marketing anymore beggars belief.
Frankly I'd like to see a return to the small quirky non-sport card series instead of the sport cards they infrequently insert nowadays.
Fortunately, thanks to eBay, I'm discovering the magic of the pre-1970's series (a few cards at a time).

A fairly comprehensive but by no means complete listing of Weet-Bix card/sticker/tranfer/mini flag sets from 1942 through to today.

Usually sets of 20 Cards for 1970's onward. Listings in italics are not confirmed from multiple sources.
Large card is the size of the standard football card. I've used card as the typical 1970's and 1980's standard Weet-Bix card
or where I am unsure of the card size.Where I can I have added additional card description.
I'm not sure about card sheets and press out cards -  these sound like back of the box stuff and I am not sure if they should
be included in the listing. I've never seen any of the linen flags. I'll update with listings I see.
Years for some of the more recent sets elude me - nothing on the cards (why did they ever stop putting the year on the cards!)
Anybody with any additional information please send me an eBay message - be grateful for any clarifications, corrections or confirmations.
