Messerschmitt Me262 (2 - Jumo 004) Fighter.  Identification/Recognition Poster Issue 2 - January 1945.  Approximately  38 x 55cm.  Printed by Fosh and Cross Ltd. on fairly thin paper.  Shows the silhouette of this infamous Luftwaffe jet fighter from the front, underside and side.   It has creasing and very minor edge tears that have been repaired using specialist ultra-thin acid-free archival tape that does not yellow, crack or harden and can be removed by a conservator.  There is an ink stain on the left edge.  Not perfect but in reasonable condition and displays very well.  These would have been used in training schools and were also displayed in Mess huts on active RAF bases.  Will be posted in a card mailing tube.  Stock code P25511.
