Recruiting balloon

A recruiting balloon in George Square, November 1918. Behind the balloon is a large poster encouraging people to take part in "Victory Savings Week."

Germany followed Turkey and Austria-Hungary in seeking an Armistice in November 1918, but conflicts ignited by the First World War continued in Russia and other countries until 1923.
