The “You buy ’em, we’ll fly ’em! Defense Bonds Stamps” were used during World War 2 to encourage the purchase of war bonds by those at home. The poster is bright and cheerful with a pilot smiling out from his cockpit.
The poster was published in 1942 and depicts a pilot in his cockpit with numerous airplanes flying behind him. He is smiling into the camera with his thumb up. This poster was designed to have a positive outlook on the war and to give the people at home confidence that work they were doing was having an impact. The poster was designed by Walter J Wilkinson.
