New Zealand: World War I poster

Today I got a postcard from New Zealand.

It shows the World War I poster "Boys! Come along You're Wanted" from the collection of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington. The poster was created in 1915 by an unknown artist.

With related stamps:
1917 The Darkest Hour (three from set of ten) (issued 05-04-2017)
By 1917 soldiers and the home front had begun to lose faith in the ongoing war. During the Battle of Passchendaele in October 1917 New Zealand experienced the deadliest day in its military history.

Thank You very much Sharon!
