World War 11 poster - self explanatory.



World War 1 Australian recruiting poster printed by W.E.Smith in 1918. An early example of W.E. Smith's work.




Sons Of The Anzacs ( 1943 ) Australian World War 11 documentary film poster.The image is courtesy of the Australan War Memorial. For years this image wasn't available on their website to view. I contacted them in 2017 and they informed me that they would place my request for image in a queue of images to be photographed. On the 29th of October 2017, I was informed by them that it was now available to view on their website. Many thanks for the AWR doing this.



Previously displayed elsewhere on this website by John was this original booklet.

    We Of The A.I.F. ( 1939 ) poster printed by Victory Publicity Litho. This poster was printed for the 35mm 1939 documentaty feature film which ran 129 min. 39 sec., and was produced by the Australian War Memorial. The film covers the Great War ( 1914-1918 ) and  Australian troops involvement. The film was completed before the outbreak of the second World War and was screened from 1939 onwards widely throughout Australia as a morale booster after Australia had entered  WW11.




    A 1941 Australian film advertisement with the poster image used.




    A different style advertisement from a Newcastle N.S.W. newspaper placed for the film's one week run commencing on November 15, 1940. A kind lady from Trove supplied me with this image.




    Just one image from the footage that had been sitting in vaults for 20 years that ended up being used in the film.





    Another Australian newspaper advertisement placed in 1941 showing the popularity of the film in Perth W.A.
