IRISH BRIGADE IN WORLD WAR II.
IRISH RECRUITING COUNCIL. Irish Recruiting / Duty of Irishmen. Dublin, Sackville Press, c.1944. Poster printed in green and black, 760 x 505 mm. 25 mm loss Ireland was at lower left corner, some toning overall.

Ireland was officially neutral at the onset of World War II, but many Irishmen, both northern and southern, volunteered to serve in His Majesty's Forces to fight the Axis powers. It was suggested early on that an Irish Brigade be raised, an idea which Churchill loved, but given the potential political fallout, the organization did not happen until 1942. This poster calls for yet more Irish to volunteer, as "war-worn remnants of the Irish Brigade are reeling beneath the blows of a tyranny that would quench the lamp of freedom in Europe."
