She Talked … This Happened-Careless Talk Costs Lives In an attempt to garner support and aid from the United States during World War II mass media became a way to foster support and aid. Therefore, British Propaganda became essential towards boasting moral and sympathy during the war. Posters were created and directly aimed at specific topics such as food rationing, military tactics, sexually transmitted diseases and child evacuations. Some of these posters were created in groups and some individually created towards these subjects. One such group is the Careless Talk Costs Lives Posters also known as the Anti-Gossip Campaign, where a number of posters were aimed to keep military personnel from discussing vital information. The fear that Hitler’s Spies were everywhere and could be anyone were implied in the images created. Images from the Careless Talk Costs Lives Collection from The Imperial War Museum:
