Your Country Needs You!
This World War One commemorative exhibition features a fascinating selection of original WWI posters from the museum’s collection. They were originally created by the British Government for public display as a form of propaganda to persuade men to join the armed forces after the country went to war in August 1914, and then throughout the war as it dragged on for four long years. Brightly coloured posters with striking images and memorable slogans were the ideal means of mass communication in an age before television, the internet and social media.
