Tap for victory

"Tap for victory" by Nunney, Date unknown

Catalogue ref: INF 3/376Links to the Catalogue


A Colonial poster, using the slogan ‘Tap for victory', depicting four Empire Marketing Board (EMB) style pictures showing the progress of rubber, from tree tapping to aeroplane tyre.

The bomber depicted is a Short Stirling, Britain's first ‘heavy' four-engined bomber, and was first issued to RAF squadrons in August 1939. By mid-1943 the Stirling had been phased out of service with front line Bomber Command squadrons in favour of the more modern Lancaster and Halifax types.
