Welsh: Pro Patria! 1917.


Categories: , ,


Welsh Pro Patria! 1917. A matched pair of elegant horses and riders troops the national and army colors in this classic recruiting poster. Correct down to the smallest detail, these cavalrymen ride out of war’s distant past and into an uncertain future. World War I was destined to be the last hurrah of the once glorious traditional cavalry. Rare. 42×28 near mint, conservation backed.
