This 1942 British Second World War poster was created by His Majesty's Stationary Office on behalf of the Ministry of Information. This poster depicts a convoy of British Crusader tanks speeding through desert.

The poster was likely produced to show the general public the sort of work that was done by Allied navies, with the phrase 'back them up' referring to continuing the fight and efforts on the home front.

This was one of a series of posters all with the same title.
