Poster produced for Great Western Railway (GWR), London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS), London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) and Southern Railway (SR) to advise pasengers that the railways for reasons of national security were unable to inform them in advance of delays. That information was censored lest it be used by the Germans, who might take advantage of it to launch an offensive. Artwork by an unknown artist.
