One of the Ministry of Information's ?silent column? posters showing the great catastrophes which may follow a few idle words, released in Britain July 12, 1940. The Ministry of Information has launched a big campaign to organize every man, woman and child in the country into a vast ?Silent Column? which will fight the fifth column by killing rumour, gossip and defeatism. The campaign will be conducted through the newspapers, periodicals, posters, broadcasting and even ?chatter boxes? where offenders will be asked to ?fine? themselves by putting a gift for charity into the box.
