A recruitment poster from World War II. While the Canadian response to the call to arms was strong, enlistment began to wane as the death tolls mounted and the number of available men shrunk. The response from the government was an intensive program of public relations and patriotic sentiment. Note the Union Jack flying in the background, a constant reminder to Canadians that they were fighting for what was still their 'Mother Country.'
