    Military posters ,who collects them?

    I enjoy going to flea markets during the summer and looking for unique items to add to my collection, this past summer had been exceptionally good to me with locating items, I recently had these WWII and 1950's era posters professionally framed. Just curious how many of you folks collect posters? I also found a nice front page newspaper article from December 8th 1941

    My son has a host of original cinema posters framed like Alan Ladd in PARATROOPER for instance and a BRIDGE TO FAR. Nice collection there though well done, lost forever, if people like you didn't keep a copy.
    We have a number of original posters showing parachutists how to do certain things from 1940

    Only war posters I ever see are too costly for my budget. I did get a box full of WWII newspapers at a yard sale last summer. Movie posters I have several and those smaller movie posters that went inside the theater on the walls I have hundreds. Only have a few on display. One of my favorites and sort of "war" related is the original "Terminator" movie.

    I gathered some up over the years , but had no place to show them off . I finally framed them and hung them at my work . Got 16 out and about . Some reproductions and a few originals , even a couple of " GI Joe " editions . Favorite original is one telling what the war materials cost are that the bond money is spent on .

    I use to save the WW2 aircraft prints by Charles Hubbell from WW2 calendars. Excellent prints, only have the B-24 at the Ploesti Raid left

    That reminds me, over the years instructing as you do in the Army, I have rolled up somewhere loads of weapons posters rescued from the bin for the recruits to marvel at...............I'll photograph them when I get a minute
