Enlist in the WAVES

War Poster, 1942
38 x 28 in (97 x 71 cm)
ID #LB32x47WAR-L-03
"It's a grand and glorious feeling... Enlist in the WAVES... Inquire at any Navy Recruiting Station or Office of Naval Officer Procurement."

The WAVES was the female branch of the Navy during World War II. Though they didn't fight, they held jobs like mechanic or engineer and thus had to be educated. This poster shows a reversal of the typical man going off to war and instead shows a dad sending his daughter off.

Artist: John Falter

Condition: Good

Please note this poster is linen backed
