"The Empire's Strength, do you know that India supplies all the jute for making sacks and sandbags: that more than half Britian's needs of livestock foods come from India as well as tea, rice, hides, skins, cotton and manganese. These are the sinews of war."

This propaganda from India is meant to show citizens of England the importance of keeping their colonies due to the lack of their own resources.
