Jacqmar of London made propaganda scarves between 1940-1945. They were based in Mayfair and many were produced for the export market as well as for wartime sweethearts, particularly in London. Chief designer Arnold Lever continued working for the company even after he had joined the RAF. The scarves fall into three main thematic groups of the armed forces, allies and home front and usually have the Jacqmar name on the scarf. These scarves are now very highly sought after and collectable. Stock code M17759.
