The National Gallery has just placed a large number of British war propaganda posters online - see http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Ca...nited_Kingdom)
Not just posters though - other artwork too:

Awesome. I love propaganda images. The Spanish Civil War ones in particular have some spectacular imagery and modernist figures. Great stuff.

Some of the "economy & recycling" measures were really just morale boosters, giving the public a way to feel like they were doing something to contribute to the war effort. I can't remember if bones were one of these or they really needed them, but the used tyre drive in the US harvested many more tyres than they could ever use. They none-the-less continued with it because it boosted morale so much.
Saving bones = making glue perhaps?

Freedom is not free. Free men are not equal. Equal men are not free. Why do we always act as if we have forgotten this?
