WW2 BRITISH PROPAGANDA POSTER (BATTLE of BRITAIN)
Possibly the most iconic (and also one of the rarest to survive) British posters of WW2, responding to the outcome of the Battle of Britain by the Prime Minister.
Large pictorial, subtle coloured poster showing 5 airmen with Churchill's famous quote above it.
The poster has been backed with calico netting for strength, and has been folded in four with the obvious creasing.
The poster edge is with age and use 'nicking', and with small tears to the top left and right corners.
The upper edge is with some minor staining, with slight paper age discolouration due to age and possibly the backing.
The poster is complete and is in the main damage free....It has been used, and as such shows said use.
Printer details to the bottom left corner of the poster 'Printed for H.M. Stationary Office.....'
Approx. 73cms x 50cms
