Holy mother of god !!!     I wish I had know you then Eric !!!! 

Im going to have to get somthing done with that poster of mine !! It wasn't until Ron had enlightened me on it  that I realised that I had some value  folded away in a bag !!! :o

Thanks, Carl! Yeah, I had a lot of people messaging me when I initially posted them. If I had the money, I would have purchased all of them, but just couldn't do it...

As for your example, I would certainly recommend doing something to preserve and display it.

Eric,

Excellent choice of posters to decide to keep. That poster is one of the iconic images from the period..

Thank you for showing us these.

Thanks, Smitty! It's certainly a great image and really paints the picture (no pun intended) of the feelings many on the home-front had when it came to the Germans. Personally, it's a great image because it combines my fondness of US and Imperial German militaria.

Could you imagine the government today commissioning an image like this? The protests that would ensue would be unfathomable!
