About this item

Attributed to John Worsley
Join the New Regular Army – A Real Man’s Life
Published by Her Majesty’s Stationery Office. Printed by Chromoworks Limited, 1959

Lithographic poster

75x50cm

Worsley was a war artist during World War II who was captured by the Germans and then an illustrator for Eagle comic. Click here for further biographical details and other posters by Worsley.

The Soldier of the Queen depicted is a tank commander. At the time the poster was printed the main location for deployment of tanks was West Germany. In 1946 the British Army of the Rhine was created to protect Germany – and indeed Europe – from a Soviet invasion. Numbering up to 80,000 soldiers it was estimated that in the event of war the life expectancy of a tank commander would be less than two days. A Real Man’s Life indeed.
