Alfred Leete was a well-known comic illustrator, whose work included cartoons, postcards, book illustrations and posters which he designed for the Underground Group from 1915-1928. His most famous poster, 'Your Country Needs You' (1914) first appeared on the cover of the weekly magazine "London Opinion" before being adapted for use as a recruitment poster. It is probably the best-known war poster of all time and has inspired many adaptations.
