Buy Liberty Bonds And War Savings Certificates Mystery

''What's Buzzin' Cousin ?'' ( 1943 ) Australian One sheet. This poster was printed for the Australian release that took place in 1944. What I find interesting is the " Buy Liberty Bonds And War Savings Certificates'' line at the bottom. As this was applicable to the U.S.A., why is it appearing on the Australian poster? This wording  doesn't appear on the Australian daybill, and as far as I can see on any other U.S. posters printed for this film, or does it appear on any other U.S. film poster whatsoever from World War 1, as well as any Australian posters. The only thing I can think of is that in the film Ann Miller and chorus girls appear to dance a patriotic number, with a backdrop of a curtain, with a  large poster attached with the words '' For Victory Buy United States Defense Bonds Stamps''. Was this a possible reason, but is so, why place it on an Australian one sheet ?
