World War I Propaganda Poster

OUR BOYS NEED SOX, KNIT YOUR BIT
Women could not serve in the army, but they could help the war effort in other ways. This poster urged women to knit socks for soldiers, even though textile factories made soldiers’ uniforms. Efforts like these had more to do with generating feelings of patriotism than with actually supplying the troops.
