National Archives publishes World War II poster and art collection on Wikimedia 

Hundreds of original wartime art works from the National Archive’s stunning collection of more than 2,000 pieces by war artists, working for the Ministry of Information during the Second World War, have been put online thanks to a digitisation grant from Wikimedia UK.  

National Archives, who are hoping the Wikimedia Community will help them identify some paintings and enrich knowledge about the collection, say they would like to ultimately put the whole World War II art collection online.
