GWR Salvage Corps leaflet, 1940

During the war the GWR were committed to salvaging paper and other material. In August 1940 General Manager, James Milne, invited employees to join the GWR Salvage Corp. This leaflet was issued to encourage staff to salvage a whole host of items, including metals, timber, glass, rubber, bones and foodstuffs. A quote from the inside reads Salvage feeds the guns that fight the Huns, a reference to the German enemy
