Palmer's Not Just Hats Off to the Flag but Sleeves Up for It! is the finest image issued for the Ordnance Department. The artist depicts a muscular munitions worker, shells at his feet, rolling up his sleeves for the war effort as a huge Old Glory flutters in the distance. In the background a large crowd is seen in silhouette, cheering his gung ho attitude. Posters encouraging production, a staple of World War II posters, are very rare in World War I. 40x30 near mint, conservation backed.
