I have three posters in mine. All original WWII posters. It really makes the room when the posters are as authentic as the uniforms, etc.

Early WWII Cooks and Bakers Recruiting. Back side is blue and a "call to the colors" for one year with Indiana recruiting stations listed. I'm thinking 1940 moblization. So I guess to save paper these were reprinted on the back side. -

All are great examples posted above. Very nice!

Here is an old sorta crummy pic of my library, showing four of the nine original posters I have up on the walls. I have another ten or so that I would like to get up, but ran out of space. My better half has frowned on me putting them up in the living room. Something or other about the 'design scheme'. I don't see the problem myself.

I have had most of my posters de-acidified and professionally mounted on museum quality linen backing to help preserve them. I like the old posters and would like to chase some more, but space is the major issue these days.

Great Posters Charlie !!
Thank You for posting them !!!! I know what you mean about space I have about 70 posters most in Blueprint cabinets with acid free paper between them . about 50 are WWI , 6 WWII and the rest being after WWII . My wife said the same to me . so I tried to sneak one past one day ( Took one of her pictures down ) . Boy did I ever catch it . never do that again .

Hi Dave. Yea, it is a pretty neat one. If I remember correctly, his eyes are a creepy yellowish-greenish color, but I will have to conform that tonight. As much time as I spend in that room, I can't believe that I don't remember. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

The eyes are the same greenish color as the highlights in the water.

Great Poster Chuck !!! I need to get a couple of WWII out . There has been some really super posters posted !!! I just don't seem to find that many WWII posters for some reason . There out there . I'm glad to hear how everyone is preserving them also !! Some people just put them in a frame because they do not know . So this is educating for them how to do it the right way !!! Thank You all for adding this !! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

I have a large number of Armor posters from the 70s-80s that I picked up at Knox in the early 90s. They feature the M-1 tank and the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, plus there is a great one that shows Armor/Cavalry/Tank Destroyer branch insignia going way back. There is also several vehicle recognizition posters including one showing armor vehicles past and present. Unfortunately they are buried somewhere in the war room, currently beyond reach. Kevin
