Description

British recruiting poster produced by the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee. Depicts John Bull, resplendent in a Union Jack waistcoat, pointing at the viewer. Behind him is a group of buildings on fire, and a line of khaki-uniformed British soldiers. The title runs across the upper part of the poster, and the remainder of the text occupies the bottom part. The entirety is surrounded by a brown border.
