Winston S. Churchill bust


"Your Country Needs YOU!"


By: "Ternes"
Date: 1941
Published: Australian Commonwealth Military Forces [Australia]
Size (Details): (19 x 28 1/2 inches)

Category: Ephemera
From: Churchill at Chartwell
Item Number: 208181

Description: This extravagantly rare, original Australian recruitment poster was created to promote the Second Australian Imperial Force (AIF), the name given to the volunteer personnel of the Australian Army in World War II. Under the Defence Act, neither the part-time Militia nor the full-time Permanent Military Force could serve outside Australia or its territories unless they volunteered to do so. The First AIF had been formed during the First World War (lasting from 1914-1921).

Drawn by an artist identified simply as "Ternes," in the style of the legendary World War I recruitment poster that featured a similar image of Lord Kitchener, the poster measures 19 x 28 1/2 inches and is in very good condition, with fractional loss at the upper left edge, not affecting the image, a few closed tears and one chip along the righthand border. It has been matted and spectacularly framed (27 x 36 1/2 inches overall).

 Please Note: This is a weighty item and does not qualify for free shipping.
