Everybody is making "Keep Calm and Carry on" prints nowadays ("Keep Calm and Carrie Bradshaw" "Keep Calm and Carry a Towel"), and this is the same sort of thing. They were posters put up in the tube stations and public places during the war to boost morale. They are rather hilarious - and nice looking.
It all seems so glamourous when you read about flying in the forties and fifties. Death in the Clouds makes me quite wistful, even though someone is killed en route.
