The Story of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’

Keep Calm and Carry On was a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the event of invasion.
The poster was rediscovered in 2000 and has been re-issued by a number of private sector companies, and used as the decorative theme for a range of other products. There were only two known surviving examples of the poster outside government archives until a collection of about 20 originals were brought in to the Antiques Roadshow in 2012 by the daughter of an ex-Royal Observer Corps member.
Here is a video that explains how and where the poster was rediscovered and its rise to fame.

  1. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot
