First World War posters
Posters published in large numbers by the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee, probably in 1915, were aimed at the young Englishmen who might be considering joining up for active servuice at the front.
Recruitment was voluntary until 1916 when a law introducing conscription was introduced.
