EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking screen-print poster, published around 1950, commemorates the activities of the 52nd (Lowland) Division during World War II. The design, which was used as the cover for George Blake's book "Mountain and Flood: History of the 52nd (Lowland) Division, Glasgow" (1950), features a map of Northern Europe with key operational areas highlighted. The top and bottom of the poster are adorned with the unit badges of the 52nd Lowland Division. During the war, from 1940 to 1944, the 52nd Lowland Division saw action in various theaters, including France, Belgium, Holland, and Germany. The division played a significant role in the D-Day landings at Brest and Cherbourg, and participated in the liberation of Belgium and the Netherlands. The map on the poster shows the division's route through Britain and Scotland before embarking for France. The training and preparation that took place in the Scottish hills and lochs is reflected in the title of Blake's book. The poster serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by the soldiers of the 52nd Lowland Division during the war. A copy of this poster is kept with the National Army Museum's copy of Blake's book, making it an important historical artifact. The poster's design, with its bold colors and clear typography, is a testament to the graphic design skills of the time. This poster is a valuable addition to any collection of World War II memorabilia or military history.
