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.


The reverse features the ‘Daddy, what did you do in the war?’ recruitment poster. This British recruiting poster was produced in 1915 and has since become infamous for its use of emotional blackmail to urge men to enlist with the British Army. Produced by the London printers Johnson Riddle & Co, it was conceived from the director Arthur Gunn’s own feelings of guilt at having not volunteered himself. Seeing the persuasive potential of a child’s awkward questions to a shirking father in peacetime, Gunn commissioned a poster picturing such a scene.
