Titled: New British Army in the Day of Victory - September 25th 1915.
An original large pull-out print showing the various divisions of British soldiers, including Scottish divisions. The men, some in kilts, are charging with bayonets fixed through German lines, barbed wire entanglements and trenches etc. The print was described as a rotary photogravure on tinted plate paper suitable for framing. A now rare print, which was presented to the readers of a magazine, which detailed events up to that time in WWI.
Also included is a single page flyer which was used to advertise the above print, and on the reverse of the flyer is a pictorial explanation of the evolution of the Union Jack Flag
PLEASE NOTE There is a small hole in the middle of this flyer
The print was from a picture specially painted for the magazine by Stanley Llewellyn Wood (1866 Newport, Monmouthshire - 1928) Welsh born artist known for his military illustrations etc.
It measures 610mm X 255mm (24x10inches). It is blank on the reverse and suitable for framing. There are 3 "as published" folds to the photogravure print, 2 of which have 2 splits to them mostly affecting borders but 2 of these splits do encroach onto the printed area approx 1cm and 0.5cm (you may be able to see the splits on the scans). There is a little age yellowing with handling marks to the edges. It is dated with the provenance in the top left border. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.
