Rare Second World War propaganda poster, indicating that Allied sailor anti-aircraft gunners should remain vigilant against the threat posed by German anti-shipping bombers.
The poster features a caricature of a wolf-faced airplane being shot out of the sky by a British gunner on a vessel. The airplane is a Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor, one of the Luftwaffe's capable maritime patrol bombers that would have sought out Allied shipping in 1941.
The poster is monogrammed "IE 41" in the lower right corner. We have been unable to identify the artist, as the poster is extremely rare.
We have been unable to locate any other examples of the poster.
Mounted on linen. Repaired paper losses and tears. Archivally backed on modern poster linen.
