    Description

    World War I Propaganda (The Parliamentary Recruiting Committee, 1915). British Recruitment Poster (20" X 29.5") "Take His Tip" & "Make Us as Proud of You as We are of Him."
    Though Robert Burns (1759-1796), the unofficial national poet of Scotland, expressed a desire to be a "sodger," it turned out that he never did join the army--a small fact that the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee left out. Burns did join the Royal Dumfries Volunteers shortly before he died, but it seems that it was for appearances only. "Make us as Proud" has small chips and tears in three borders with some archival tape on the verso, a vertical tear in the upper right border, and some surface wear in the image. "Take His Tip" has some edge wear with small tears, and a tear in the right border into the background with archival tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
