    Default WW1 Australian Imperial Force Poster

    Fresh out of an old shed (and it looks like it too), this poster (80cm x 50cm) was printed after the great war, so is nearly 100yrs old, and in the original frame. There would not be many of these left, if any at all. The only thing modern is the hanging wire. It shows the australian commanders, and divisions, including where they served along with figures of casualties and deaths, and brithis awards issued. The Australian "colony" had a total of 416,809 enlistments, of which 331,946 embarked for active duty. The total number of casualties were 318,387 (dead, POW's and wounded). Worth sharing with you.

    Great item and quite likely to be one of very few or as you mention perhaps even the only surviving example.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Nice pick up! Have seen these in the past - especially in the the country areas, but usually they are faded or have water damage for some reason (possibly left in the shed for some time?). This one looks very good. Are you going to leave the frame as is or restore it?

    Cheers
