Leslie Arthur Wilcox RI RSMA (1904-1982)
National Savings – Make Sure Your Ship Comes In

Original Vintage Poster

During World War 2, the British Government had two particular financial problems addressed by this poster. There was little to buy, so the general populace had surplus cash to spend. If they spent it, this would be inflationary and would reduce the supply of items. Likewise, the Government needed money to spend on materiel and was short of cash. Encouraging the population to lend its spare cash to the Government was therefore a solution to this problem, and a series of posters – and other advertisings campaigns – aimed to address this point.
