The “Join the Air Service and serve in France – Do it now” poster was used during World War 1 to recruit for the United States airforce.
The poster uses the mention of France as a place where soldiers can server. At the time, Europe and particularly France was an exotic location where many U.S. citizens dreamed of travelling to. This poster entices recruitment by offering soldiers the opportunity to travel overseas.
The poster was designed by Paul J. Verrees who was of Belgian origin but lived in the United States. He designed a number of recruitment posters during World War 1.
This poster is part of our recruitment posters collection.
