Genuine & Very Rare “You Ought to Jump at it” Territorial Army Recruitment Poster c.1920
The poster for sale is an extremely scarce recruitment poster for the British Territorial Army.
In times of peace it was difficult to recruit men into the Regular and Territorial Army on ideological grounds and rare to find those motivated simply by the desire to serve King and country. This recruitment poster, therefore, appeals to prospective soldiers’ love of sport and offers them ‘the finest training in the world for sportsmen’.
Original survivors of such interwar posters are incredibly rare and very difficult to find.
