Jacket - Careless Talk Costs Lives, V

Dress, Careless Talk Costs Lives, Fougasse, ca. 1943. As this detail of dress fabric shows, textile design during the early 1940s drew on the experiences of wartime Britain for inspiration. These cartoons are taken from a campaign by the Ministry of Information. The campaign included posters entitled 'Careless Talk Costs Lives', which were distributed around the country, featuring enemy figures overhearing members of the British public discussing the war.
