This vintage original recruiting poster was issued by the United States Marine Corps during WWI. The artwork by Bruce Moore depicts Marines charging forward with their M1903 Springfield rifles. US Navy vessels and ocean form the background with the title Soldiers Of The Sea appearing across the bottom of the image.
The same image by Bruce Moore appears in another WWI Marine Corp recruiting poster which is larger and features additional illustrated vignettes on the right and left margin. This smaller version without the additional border artwork is harder to find and still has the original metal strips across the top and bottom edges.
This vintage original poster is fully complete and intact. The poster shows moderate handling wear and has some foxing mostly to the margins outside the image area. Overall condition is very good.
