British recruitment poster
A 1915 recruitment poster for the British Army, using the spectre of German strategic bombing to tell potential recruits that "It is far better to face the bullets than to be killed at home by a bomb."

Between 1915 and 1918, German bombings of Britain—at first using rigid airships but later using aeroplanes—killed more than 1,300 people and injured over 3,000. Concern for the defence against the raids ultimately led to the creation of the Royal Air Force on 1 April 1918.Illustration: Publicity Department, Central Recruiting Depot; restoration: Adam Cuerden
