Fall In for WWI

Yesterday The British Library in London opened Enduring War: Grief, Grit and Humour as part of its contribution to the First World War Centenary. Using posters, poetry, books and pamphlets from the period, the exhibition examines how people coped with life during the war. The image shown is a Parliamentary Recruiting Committee poster Fall In (1914) attempting to whip up patriotic fervour to recruit soldiers for the trenches. The display is in the Folio Society Gallery, admission free, until 12 October (CLICK)
