UVF - Ulster Volunteer Force Poster
Notice posted by the Ulster Volunteer Force intending to quell speculation that its founding was a direct violent challenge to those of differing views within Ulster, instead stressing that its formation was solely to put pressure on the Government and its policies. The Ulster Volunteers were a unionist militia founded in 1912 to block Home Rule for Ireland. In 1913 they were organised into the Ulster Volunteer Force, with many of its members enlisting with the 36th (Ulster) Division at the outbreak of World War I.
