British poster advertising a fundraiser for the French Red Cross during the celebration of France's Day on 14 July. Illustration depicts injured French soldiers being removed from a Red Cross ambulance with volunteers carrying the stretchers and a Red Cross nurse attending to the patients. Historical note: 14 July 1789 marks the day that the Parisian mob attacked and captured the Bastille, a fortress used primarily to house political prisoners in the 17th and 18th centuries. This act quickly came to be seen as a symbol for the end of the monarchy and the beginning of the Republic, and it is thus celebrated as Bastille Day, a national holiday, every 14 July. and Signed: A. Forestier. Date of issue based on the dates of World War I. Orientation: Vertical.
