    Large British Recruiting Poster "Remember the Lusitania!". 46" x 39". Linen backed. Certainly no single act provoked as much outrage against Germany and turned the tide of public opinion in the United States as the sinking of the liner RMS Lusitania. The Lusitania was torpedoed by a German submarine and sank with the loss of 1,198 of the 1,959 aboard. This poster, English in origin, was published by the Parliamentary Recruiting Commission in London. One side of the poster chronicles the tragic story of a woman who lost her three young children, one "a babe in arms", contrasted with quotes from contemporary German and American newspaper accounts shortly after the sinking on the other half of the poster. The overall condition is excellent with only old fold creases and some minor loss and closed tears along the margins. The remnants of a 4th Liberty Load drive sticker is affixed at the top center. From the Collection of the American Red Cross.
