Although America stayed out of World War I until 1917, the British attempted to recruit expatriates from the shores of their former colony. Similar British posters for their hometown market call on Brits to "come over here" and "slip across and help," but they are often referring to the much shorter journey from England to France. Rawls p. 51, Theofiles 22, Borkan p. 44.
