Another poster from the British Ministry of Informations 'Keep Calm & Carry On' series.

Posters were designed by the British Ministry of Information to offer instruction at a time of panic. After being re-discovered in 2000, the ‘Keep Calm & Carry On‘ poster has been widely used as inspiration for art and even adapted into advertisements.

When the poster above was issued, it was feared that in the early months of the war, Britain would be subjected to gas attacks, heavy bombing raids and even invasion. The posters were intended to offer the public reassurance in the dark days which lay ahead.
