World War 2 Propaganda Postcard – “Keep Quiet – You Never Know What Jerry’s About”

World War 2 Postcard - Keep Quiet - You Never Know What Jerry's About

Fun postcard, which my Grandfather sent home from World War 2.  A reminder for the New Zealand troops during World War 2 to be careful in what they say as “Jerry” has ears.  A good play on words with the chamber pots also being known in slang as “Jerrys” and the caricatures on the pots.

I recognise Hilter on the right but not sure who the ones on the left are.  Any hints readers?  Mussolini?

Finds humour in the inappropriate. Holiday planner extraordinaire. Mum to doglets. Crazy Dachshund lady.
