Original vintage British WWII propaganda poster: Fight in the Streets - Belong to your Savings Group. Issued by the National Savings Committee, the Scottish Savings Committee and the Ulster Savings Committee. Printed for Her Majesty Stationery Office by Lowe & Brydone Printers Ltd. The National Savings Movement was a British mass savings movement that operated between 1916 and 1978 and was used to finance the deficit of government spending over tax revenues. The movement was instrumental during World War II in raising funds to support the war effort. In peacetime the movement provided an easy and safe way for ordinary people to save small sums of money. The movement grew to around 7 million members before ceasing during the 1970s as more modern methods of saving took over. Savings products promoted by the movement typically offered a low level of return but the safety of a government guarantee. The movement was particularly active during wartime, when government spending was heightened. During World War II a War Savings Campaign was set up by the War Office to support the war effort. Local savings weeks were held which were promoted with posters with titles such as "Lend to Defend the Right to be Free", "Save your way to Victory" and "War Savings are Warships".Year of printing: 1940s, country of printing: UK , designer: Unknown , dimensions (cm): 75.5x50.
