EDITORS COMMENTS
No Price Can Be Too High: A Stirring Call to Service in the Great War This evocative WWI poster, produced by the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee in 1915, features a powerful quotation from the British Prime Minister, delivered during a time when the fate of the nation hung in the balance. The bold capital letters, reminiscent of the era's patriotic fervor, read, "No price can be too high when honour and freedom are at stake." The First World War, which began in 1914, had already claimed the lives of countless soldiers and civilians, and the need for recruits was more urgent than ever. The Parliamentary Recruiting Committee, established to mobilize public support for the war effort, utilized posters like this one to inspire men to enlist in the army. The quote, attributed to the Prime Minister, was likely inspired by various speeches given during this period by British leaders, including David Lloyd George and H.H. Asquith. The sentiment expressed in the quote resonated deeply with the British public, who were determined to defend their country and protect the values they held dear. The poster's design is simple yet impactful, with the text taking center stage against a plain background. The use of a bold sans-serif font and the strong contrast between the black text and the red background make the message impossible to ignore. The poster's powerful imagery and emotive language served as a rallying cry for those considering enlistment, emphasizing the importance of putting personal considerations aside in the face of national crisis. As the war raged on, posters like this one played a crucial role in maintaining morale and encouraging men to join the fight. The quote, "No price can be too high when honour and freedom are at stake," became a symbol of the sacrifices made during the war and the unwavering commitment of the British people to the cause.
