Propaganda and Recruitment Posters
Adverts for propaganda films and plays, in both English and French languages, for performances at various London theatres. There are also recruitment posters including one asking for ex non-commissioned officers (such as a corporal, sergeant, or petty officer) from all services to come forward. Lord Kitchener is inviting them to re-enlist. Their main job is to become instructors for new units being formed. They are promised an immediate promotion. Ex-regulars will get 'the rank they formerly held' and others will become Corporals. The photograph was taken by a professional company, Bedford Le Mere & Co but there is no information about where it was taken.
