"Sunk Without Trace, One Good Soldier"


This poster shows a serviceman's hand reaching up out of the water and warns that VD hurts the war effort. Part of the "Rum and Women Just Don't Mix Series."

"Torpedoed? You Bet Your Life! Hitler didn't do it..but he might just as well have. This soldier really 'dosed himself up' one night and hasn't been worth a tinkers damn ever since! Broken in health, broken in rank, broken in mentality. He's just a liability to himself and to Uncle Sam..Be smart! Remember: Rum and Women Just don't mix"
