This poster with its powerful image was issued by The Parliamentary Recruiting Committee shortly after the sinking of the Lusitania , and printed by David Allen & Sons. It is Card No. 114, printed on heavy card stock and measuring approximately 14 ¼ X 9 ½ inches. Its original orange string hanger is threaded through two metal gromits at the upper edge; t is rubbing to the edges and some slight bumping to the corners, but overall it is in remarkable condition.
