BHC 310000 Keep Calm and Carry On

Ref: BHC 310000

This iconic poster has become incredibly popular in the past year. The poster was initially produced by the Ministry of Information in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, and was intended to be used to stiffen resolve should the Nazis succeed in invading Great Britain. Two-and-a-half million copies were printed, although the poster was distributed only in limited numbers. The designer of the poster is not known. The poster was third in a series of three. The previous two posters from the series, "Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution Will Bring Us Victory" (800,000 printed) and "Freedom is in Peril" (400,000 printed) were issued and used across the country for motivational purposes. These posters can also be found on this site.
