Hi All! I've been looking through the thread on WWs1&2 recruiting posters and am wondering if anyone out there has copies of the Old Navy Recruiting posters that were put in public places, tavern walls etc.during the 17-1800s. Such as stout hearted seamen wanted for the good ship Venus bound for the South Seas under Captain Bligh RN. Free beer and fresh weevils etc....
I have seen them for the navy,marines and various army regiments and think they would make an interesting thread.Sad to say I have none of my own to offer.
Cheers John O'C.

Good-afternoon Chaps,

Im glad you liked it Cochrane is a great favourite of mine, careful with his crews life, and a thorn in the side of a corrupt Admiralty.

John, I think that the posters you are after seeing are very rare. The copy of Cochrane's PALLAS poster, posted by Alan, has been copied many times and is always available at antique fairs and the like but I don't recall seeing any others. As I have mentioned elsewhere, the navy had other, less subtle ways of obtaining crews!

best wishes
Jan

Hi Jan S! I realise that originals of these posters are rare.But was hoping someone out there might have at least a stash of reproductions of the old art.I've always found them interesting and amusing.
Cheers John O'C.

Interesting! Do you have dates for these USMC posters? The second is fairly recent, judged by the 48 star flag.

John the one with marine was WW2, and other the Civil War. The next two you may find interesting the old one is a John Paul Jones poster.
