Poster Print of Presentation of a War Savings League Cup to members at Swindon Works, 1944

This photograph was taken on 20th April 1944 and shows Chief Mechanical Engineer, F.W. Hawksworth, presenting a War Savings League Cup to members at Swindon Works. The National Savings Movement was set up in 1916 to help people save money as well as contributing to the war effort at the same time. During World War II the War Savings Campaign was introduced as part of the Movement specifically to raise funds for the war. Employees of the GWR set up savings groups as part of this campaign, with some depots and offices creating leagues. Swindon Works had a league of 42 member groups and competed for the Director Challenge Cup in their zealous drive to attract new members and increase contributions
