Vintage Snaffles WWI Military Print, Anzac.
A good Snaffles WWI military print entitled ‘Anzac’. The main center colour-piece image is mounted onto the printed remarque board. The Snaffles hand coloured lithograph shows an Australian soldier in the trenches of the Dardanelles. He has a cigarette in his mouth and is about to throw a grenade. In the bottom margin is a remarque depicting a hatless Australian charging with a bayonet attached to his riffle. The print is with the Snaffles blindstamp and is in original black frame.
‘ANZAC’ is an acronym from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who were formed in Egypt prior to the Gallipoli Campaign during the First World War. The combined corps served with distinction during the ill-fated 1915 Gallipoli Campaign, an attempt to capture the Dardanelles from Turkey.
