    Default Large 1943 Russian Propaganda Poster Need help with translation

    I bought a few WW2 Original WW2 Propaganda Posters this weekend..man they have gone up in price!!!.
    In amongst them was this large 1943 hand painted ( water colours) Propaganda poster.

    It is on very low quality paper and is a bit brittle, there are couple of small pieces missing as you can see in the photos.
    One square piece has no longer attached.
    This needs a good home, and should be mounted on canvas or something else to preserve it.
    Can anyone tell me what is written in the lower section?

    This is not my sort of thing so I will be letting it go.
    I still have had not luck using our Sellers listings, so I cannot put it there

    Has anyone seen one of these before?

    It is 76X28 inches.
    If this is the quality of paper used on Russian posters, I would understand why they are rare.

    It is a very nice poster. Nice Soviet art.
    The headline of the text says "Forward, to victory!"
    You can type the whole text in an online translation machine. The text will not be translated perfectly but it gives you an indication of what the Russian text means.
    Most wartime printing matters are not printed on high quality paper like we have today. In a lot of countries in Europe and also in Russia paper was scarce during the war. Because of that it was also a bad quality.
    As you already writes the poster is very brittle. So it must be kept well.
    The best way is to frame the poster. Maybe there is a special shop (art gallery) for framing this kind of posters in your town. They will advise you. Never paste the poster on a (canvas) background!!! It will irreparably damage the poster and make it worthless.
    Keep the poster from the direct sunlight. Store it on a dry a dark place. Do not fold it or roll it up. Wear cotton gloves when you want to grasp the poster. Maybe it sounds strange to you but the salt of your hands will damage the poster.
    Put the poster in a nice frame and you will have a beautiful historical piece of art on your wall.

    четверть века назад мы отчизну свою отбивали в упорном и трудном бою. не хватало нам пушек снарядов штыков но мы шли как один - и разбили врагов.

    A quarter of a century ago, we fought for our homeland in hard and difficult battle. We did not have guns, shells, bayonets, but we were as one - and defeated enemies.

    нынче-армия наша крепка и сильна и могучим оружьем владеет она. снова сталин великий нас в битву ведет. за разгром оккупантов! к победе вперед!

    Now, our army is strong and mighty and powerful weapon she owns. Again the great Stalin leads us into battle. For the defeat of the invaders! Forward to victory!

    And complementing what Asjemenou said, beware of your cat, he can scratch or render that beautiful poster useless ...
