Comments

In 1919, as part of the initial peace bonds promotional campaign, the 'Well Boy - You've done your Bit. What will Australia do for you' poster was launched. The poster symbolised that even those who were not eligible for recruitment could still provide assistance and 'do their bit'for their country. The design depicted a young veteran in uniform being welcomed back to civilian life by an elderly farmer, with his flock of sheep and a drover in the background.
