Catalogue ref: INF 3/274Links to the Catalogue


A cheerful Careless talk poster, illustrating the head of a soldier, with a shadow behind him, which could be interpreted as those listening in the shadows. The soldier is pulling a zip-fastener across his mouth, to keep in any important military information. The image is accompanied by the slogan: ‘Zipp it! Careless talk costs lives'.
