A proof for the poster for the Kitchener Appeal urging men to sign up or join the war effort during the Great War. On the left of the central panel are two industrial workers watching as other men move under the panel to become soldiers on the battlefield on the right. The finished panel continued: ''I have said that I would let the country know when more men were wanted for the war. The time has come and I now call for 300,000 recruits to form new armies - Those who are engaged on the production of war material of any kind should not leave their work. It is to men who are not performing this duty that I appeal. 16th May 1915''. Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) was not an official war artist but he produced over 80 posters during the war, most with no payment.
