A call from the Dardanelles

This is a World War I enlistment poster. Many posters were printed during World War I to encourage solders to enlist, particular from 1916 onwards when the number of recruits was dropping and casualties were increasing.

See more posters on this Pinterest board, and read more about recruitment and the conscription debate in our WWI and Australia research guide.
