During the Second World War, the United Kingdom relied on supplies from overseas. Keeping its lines of supply open was a major strategic factor in the war. This poster was one in a series about the United Kingdom at war. It pays recognition to the Merchant Navy and reassures those at the home front with its image of strong, competent men.
