Dig for Plenty

Poster entitled ‘Dig for Plenty’ with artist’s signature ‘BAN’ (1939-1945), Catalogue ref: INF 3/97

This poster was used as part of the government campaign ‘Dig for Plenty’ to encourage people to grow their food, similar to other campaigns such as ‘Lend a Hand on the Land’, ‘Dig for Victory’ or ‘Battle for Bread’.

The ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign, started in October 1939, was one of the most famous of the war. It encouraged people to use every spare piece of land, including their gardens, to grow vegetables.
