WW1 - Civilian recruits standing outside recruiting office

Photograph postcard of civilian recruits standing outside an unidentified recruiting office, 1914-1915 (c). Some of the group carry bags and parcels and the recruiting posters are clearly visible behind on the windows of the office. Recruitment posters visible in window are, ?Men of the Empire To Arms!? (PRC No. 4 November 1914), ?Fall In? (PRC No. 12, November 1914) and ?Will They Never Come?, a poster produced by the Associated Newspapers in November 1914. Another poster in the window mentions APWO Yorkshire (The Yorkshire Hussars) 1/1st were sent to France in 1915. Associated with World War One, Home Front (1914-1918). As in the rest of Europe, the outbreak of war in August 1914 was greeted with popular acclaim in Britain. Around 30, 000 men were enlisting every day by the end of August. By December 1915, over two million men had enlisted. Neither the Second World War nor more recent conflicts have generated anything like this degree of enthusiasm. Men enlisted for all manner of reasons, including patriotism, the desire to quit a boring job for an exciting adventure or the chance to see another country. Date: circa 1915
