Women for armaments industry

Ministry of Munitions poster calling on women to work in the munitions industry.

First founded in May 1915 under the leadership of David Lloyd George, the Ministry of Munitions issued a series of wartime posters urging women to take up various posts in the armaments industry. This particular example shows a woman getting ready to start work at a munitions factory, accompanied by the caption: 'These women are doing their bit. Learn to make munitions.'
