    Vintage Marine Corps Recruiting Poster "Soldiers of the Sea". 26.75" x 37.75", framed under glass to an overall size of 36.75" x 44.75" Artist: J.C. Leyendecker. No date. A wonderfully evocative poster that harkens back to the Marine Corps "Little Wars" era. The image is of two Marines in khaki uniforms and their iconic campaign hats signaling to battleships waiting offshore. A palm gives the scene a tropical air which might remind one of the Marine's 1915 excursion into Haiti to fight the Cacos rebels. Flanking the central image are black and white photos of typical Marine training and garrison life of the period. Mounted in a modern red wood frame.
    Condition: Very Good- Small loss to upper right corner, minor tears at margins, but not detractive.
