Obverse: The ingot obverse features the striking statement ‘Your Country Needs You’ encircled by the Union Jack. Below this are two logos – the official logo of the Imperial War Museum and their official First World War Centenary logo.

Reverse: The reverse features the ‘Join the Royal Air Force’ recruitment poster. Britain’s Royal Air Force was formed in April 1918 during the final year of the First World War and was the world’s first independent air force.

This recruitment poster for the new service, published in Dublin, presents a fanciful depiction of aerial combat, exchanging the Western Front for rural Ireland and promising action and adventure for
potential recruits. The poster belies the grim reality of aerial warfare; fledging aviation technology and limited protection for pilot and aircraft accounted for huge loss of life on both sides. The First World War saw the use of air power in conflict on a large scale for the first time, causing a profound shift in the way that war was fought.
