Title: Join The Air Service and Serve in France

Comments: One of the best and most scarce World War One  posters, this poster recruits for the Army Air Service, the precursor to the United States Air Force, and does so in dramatic fashion with a biplane shown with its pilot in an open air cockpit and two spotters, one looking through binoculars.  The poster is signed and dated by the artist J. Paul Verrees. A very scarce fine and scarce poster.
