Canadian WWII posters

Click any image to enlarge
Canada declared war on Germany in 1939 after the invasion of Poland. It was the first time Canada, as a fully sovereign nation, ever declared war. It contributed enormously to the allied war effort. 

These images, and the ones after the jump, are just a small sample from the Canada at War forum thread Canadian Second World War Propaganda Posters & Sketch's. There are many, many more at the link, and the Canada at War website is a fantastic resource detailing Canada's contribution to WWII as well as the other wars she has been involved in.
