A photograph of the propaganda poster entitled "Red Cross or Iron Cross" by David Wilson and WFB. The poster depicts a German nurse pouring a glass of water onto the ground in front of a wounded British soldier lying on a stretcher.

There is no woman in Britain who would do it. There is no woman in Britain who will forget it".
