W.F.P.235. Issued by The National Savings Committee London and printed for HM Stationary Office by J. Weiner Ltd. Approx. 55 x 70cm. Original wartime savings poster designed specifically for use as an indicator of savings progress in schools. It is divided into 12 panels in each of which is a blank space for recording the weekly total. The 12 panels follow the series of events carried out during a RAF Air Sea Rescue (ASR) mission from the Hurricane fighter returning after a successful mission. The fighter then has engine trouble and the pilot's message is taken by the ASR Base. Other pictures show the pilot in a survival dinghy and reaching an ASR float where the pilot awaits the rescue launch. The poster is a little soiled, has creasing and small edge tears, mainly to the left edge. Displays well. Stock code BO4290.
