JOIN THE TANKS – World War One Rescruitment Poster

JOIN THE TANKS, 1914-1918. This is an original recruitment poster measuring 41′ x 27″ and dating from World War One and is in remarkable condition for its age. The artist; August Hutaf (1874-1942) could have lived a generation later as his artistic style on this poster is more reminiscent of 50’s era Sci Fi than the sombre, dark images from WWI that are more commonly seen. The poster issued by the United States Tank Corp is a popular image featuring Chrurchill Tanks amid a blaze of fire and a snarling cat leaping into the viewers field of vision. Topped off with a tagline of “Treat ‘Em Rough” this posters is one that is hard to forget. We have linen backed this poster for a customer and will soon be framing it.
