Join QARANC – Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps The Army looks to you to look after the Army Lithographic poster c. 1940s 38x25cm Printed for HMSO by Fosh & Kosh Limited, London and prepared for the War Office by the Central Office of Information. Soon after the war began the Ministry of Information’s wartime poster campaign was regarded as dull and uninspiring on account of its hectoring messages such as ‘Keep Calm and Carry On.’ There were posters telling the population how to conduct virtually every minute of their daily lives – for instance by saving old clothes for rags, turning off the lights, saving food, digging for victory, or watching out for spies. With this instruction overload the population ceased paying attention to the posters, so Fougasse offered his services to the Ministry of Information unpaid, with a view to bringing a touch of humour to serious messages. An amusing picture and a pithy caption helped to get the message across to the reader. Other poster designers were also recruited in order to create similar messages.
