'What can you do in Civvy St?', 1944

Lithograph information poster for the Army Education Scheme, after Abram Games (1914-1996), printed by Field and Sons and Company Limited, Bradford for HM Stationery Office, 1944.

As Official War Artist Games produced about 100 extraordinary posters for the British Army, ranging in theme from recruitment, through to personal hygiene, promotion possibilities, training and how to prepare for civilian life.

Keen not to repeat the failure to support service men that had occurred after the end of the First World War, the Army Education Scheme offered careers guidance and training to help prepare soldiers for the transition to civilian life.

From a collection of 45 posters from World War Two (1939-1945).
