|Posters - War|
WWII Censored British Railways World War II UK / 1940s / War Posters / 101x63.5 Original vintage World War Two propaganda poster published by British Railways informing passengers about laws that prevent them from announcing train delays, written as a poem "Censored! In Peace-time railways could explain When fog or ice held up your train But now the country's waging war To tell you why's against the law. The censor says you must not know When there's been a fall of snow That's because it would be news The Germans could not fail to use. So think of this - if it's your fate To have to meet a train that's late, Railways aren't allowed to say What delayed the trains to-day." inside a decorative border illustrated with smartly dressed people, school children and commuters and a clock at the top. Printed in London by Baynard Press. Good condition, restored folds, restored paper losses in margin, backed on linen.
