Additional Information: 

This design is consistent with the rows of white crosses commonly found at military cemeteries. Based on the design and the color of the background, this design could be one small part of the poster created for the film “Oh! What a Lovely War.” The poster is a general standing in front of the cemetery in his uniform and was used to promote the 1969 British musical and comedy directed by Richard Attenborough about the first world war. The film summarizes and comments on the events and strategies of the war, and uses parodies of World War I songs to relate the narrative. The purpose of wearing this image could be to support or remember buried military members.
