Good lot of three original American World War II "Loose Lips" posters, each warning of the dangers of inadvertently revealing important military information to enemy spies. Includes: highly graphic poster, 14 1/4" x 20", illustrated with an image of a soldier's hand lying beside a rifle butt in a pool of blood wreathed with barbed wire, beneath the title "Somebody Blabbed".
