WWI Propaganda Poster (Australian) - Enlist in the Sportman's Thousand (Albert Jacka VC, Sportsmen 1000) - Framed Picture - 14"H x 11"W

One of the many Propaganda to be issued by Australia during World War I

As the first Australian in the Great War to receive a VC, Jacka's image was used in numerous recruiting posters. His physical prowess and skills as a boxer were central to Jacka's legendary status. The Sportsmen's 1000 drew a direct link between sporting prowess and war, even punning that Jacka '"sports" the medal of medals' on his chest.
