Lysander’s Bones

Today’s Poster is a very rare one. Not because of the topic, which strangely enough inspired multiple posters, but because of the subject aircraft. The Westland Lysander has appeared in a number of adverts promoting its role, but not often as just a backdrop to another topic.


The text reads: “Salvage Bones to make Glycerine for Explosives, Glue for Aircraft. Get in touch with your local salvage committee.” It’s a Canadian wartime poster, the Lysander being made in Canada by the National Steel Car company in Toronto.
