Private Scrap



DescriptionA poster produced by the Ministry of Information for the Ministry of Supply, designed for an exhibition on scrap. The poster portrays ˜Private Scrap', a cartoon figure composed of various elements of waste products, including metal and rubber. Highlighting the important link between the civilian and military efforts, those contributing scrap could view themselves as part of the fighting force, helping to build the Lancaster bomber depicted in the background. The first scrap campaigns were produced in early 1940.
