Images of wounded soldiers were used to evoke compassion to raise money for medical care. The Association des dames françaises was one of three groups that formed the Croix-Rouge française. This 1916 poster is part of a display of WW1 posters in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva, Switzerland. The museum lists the artist as J Loney, while other sources credit Lucien Hector Jonas.
