Watch What You Say

Description:

Poster produced by the Provisional IRA (Irish Republican Army) in early 1974, printed green on white, 'This soldier could be standing beside you, Watch what you say.' A number of posters of this type were produced by the IRA in the period 1972-74. The aim was to draw the awareness of nationalists to the fact that British undercover agents may be operating in their area. The poster design, showing a soldier half in British Army uniform and half in civilian clothing, led this type of image to become known as the ‘split Brit.’
