Title: Postcard showing wounded soldiers appealing to civilians to enlist
Subtitle: World War I
Date: 1916
Notes: Printed on the reverse side of the postcard (page 2) is the poem 'The Shirker’s Chorus.' Men who were fit and able to enlist but didn’t were often labelled a shirker. Underneath the poem is space for the sender to add their name, suggesting the postcard could be sent to unenlisted men by someone who knew them.
