History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Buy War Bonds

At least half the posters from World War One seem to involve War Bonds (or whatever term the country in question uses)-- reminding you to buy them, making it your duty to buy them, guilting you into buying them. We're going to be seeing plenty of these; today's War Bond post is rather a miscellaneous intro of sorts. 

These are all from World War One, and come from the collections of the Library of Congress and the Imperial War Museum.

Sometimes it's called a War Loan Bond. Source

In the United States, you buy Liberty Bonds. Source

In Canada after 1917, you buy Victory Bonds. Source

In Australia, they are Peace Bonds-- sort of strange, isn't it, how 'war bonds' and 'peace bonds' can be the same thing. Source

Well, did you? Source
