The Story Of ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’

By now you’ve certainly seen the ‘Keep Calm and Return Fire’ patches and T-shirts we turn out but what some of you may not know is that the whole ‘Keep Calm’ phenomenon finds its genesis in and unused bit of British WW II propaganda.

    Saw a variation the other day, “Keep Calm – You will Finish Nursing School”

    Little tired of seeing the slogan absolutely everywhere now and cherished by the hip who’ve gotten no idea of what, where and when it became what it is.
    But the variants are fun, would like an SSD patch 🙂

    I still like slogan #2 better. “Freedom is in peril. Defend it with all your might.”
