We have a war theme weekend coming here at a local railway station! Must find it on my blog from a couple of years ago!

That's a very cool vintage visage with valor and values! Great V!

They could make powerful (you might say even better) posters at that time too.

Nice looking poster. It was one of these posters that got my wife's aunt to become a nurse during the war.

I love old posters! This is great! I love the colour scheme too, not too bright, but definitely red, white and blue. :)

That's a great "V" and a good sign.

I chose volunteer this week, too, but I didn't have a cool vintage poster like this one:) We could use this surge of volunteerism in today's troubled times again. Thanks for sharing!

I like those signs, I wish I could get a real one. They are so much better than the posters of today.

Love old posters. They don't make them like that any more, almost makes you want to sign up:-)

Great choice for the many messages enbedded in it: volunteer, contribute to the Red Cross, a worthy establishment.
