'It is Far Better to Face the Bullets than to be Killed at Home by a Bomb’, 1915 (c).

Recruiting poster, unknown artist, World War One, 1915 (c).

A German Zeppelin, caught in the beam of a searchlight, hovers above a silhouette of the London skyline. The first Zeppelin raid on Britain was at Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn in January 1915. London was first attacked on 31 May 1915, when seven people were killed and £18,000 worth of damage caused. In the months that followed, fifty further Zeppelin raids took place and a blackout was imposed on the city.

Original issued by the Publicity Department, Central Recruiting Depot, Whitehall, printed by Andrew Reid and Company Limited, Newcastle-on-Tyne, 1915 (c).
