'Army, the worthwhile job', 1946

Coloured lithograph recruiting poster, after Abram Games (1914-1996), printed by Chromoworks Limited, 1946.

This was one of the last posters designed by Games for the British Army in 1946. The end of World War Two (1939-1945) did not bring an end to British military commitments abroad such as the British forces stationed in Palestine, Greece and in the British occupied zones of Germany and Austria. This poster was designed in 1946, the year before the National Service Act was introduced to solve the military's manpower shortage and meet the new challenges of a rapidly changing world.

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