Wartime recruiting posters at Paddington Station, 1915

Recruiting posters were a popular way of encouraging men to enlist. Millions of posters were produced and displayed up and down the country during the war. The messages were often vivid and graphic, but also very sophisticated; they appealed to the young man and his sense of adventure and duty. The posters in this image are displayed on the cab ramp of Paddington Station in 1915. The central poster was designed by Lucy Kemp-Welch, a British artist, and refers to the bombardment of Scarborough, Whitby and Hartlepool by German battleships on 16th December 1914. Both posters were published by the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee
