  • $ 19.99

A steamer sinks, aft first, in choppy water, with black smoke rising from its funnel. From a lifeboat in the foreground right, the ship's crew stare back at the stricken vessel. The text reads "A FEW CARELESS WORDS MAY END IN THIS - Many lives were lost in the last war through careless talk Be on your guard! Don't discuss movements of ships or troops." Printed for H.M. Stationery Office by Greycaine Ltd., Watford and London. T 51 - 5667. By Norman Wilkinson (1884-1934), but printed around 1940, postmortem.
