A Message from Britain


Original lithographic poster

Printed for HMSO

St Paul’s Cathedral is depicted surrounded by searchlights as enemy bombers are sought during the Blitz. Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament are also clearly visible, as the skyline of London is depicted. The poster was intended for display throughout the Empire, with space for overprinting the country’s name.

To the People of………… Unwearied and resolute in the third winter of war, we at home in Britain send greetings to you, our fellow citizens across the seas. We thank you for your sons and daughters who fight beside us, and for your generous gifts. Together, we are achieving victory. Britain Stands Firm.
