There are many ways to help them - but none more important than this...We feed the men who fight for us.
Australian Second World War poster one of a series issued by the Department of Information, Advertising Division to encourage women to move into different areas of the industrial workforce. It emphasises the importance of industrial production on the home front to the overall war effort by linking images of men fighting at the front with images of women at work. This poster depicts a woman in the foreground centre right in 1940s style green overalls and head scarf canning tomatoes. Behind her at the top of the poster commandos are depicted in olive green, grey and black disembarking landing craft on a beach. The title text is positioned centre right printed in red cursive script and across the bottom in black. In the lower left, within the industry image is a small image of a sinking ship with warning 'Don't talk, idle gossip may sink a clothing ship'.
