What appears to be a recruiting poster is actually a large backdrop, charcoal on rough canvas, used in a play produced in the early years of World War II by U.S. naval personnel at Naval Air Station Quonset Point, Rhode Island. The dark outlines that can be seen around, for instance, the smoke in the foreground would not have been visible from “across the footlights.” The backdrop hangs today in a wooden frame in the lobby of the Naval War College’s McCarty Little Hall.
