No sooner had I blogged about British ROSPA posters than I came across this beauty which has been immediately added to my FOR SALE section

Pat Keely ROSPA

Pat Keely is truly a poster hero, this is what Wikepedia can say about him

Patrick (Pat) Cokayne Keely[1] (died 1970)[2] was a British graphic artist known for his Second World War posters for the Ministry of Information along with stylised commercial posters for publishers, the GPO and public transport.[3][4][5][6]

Keely also designed the British 4d World Scout Jubilee Jamboree stamp of 1957 and the 1s3d stamp from the 1958 Sixth British Empire and Commonwealth Games Cardiff set.[1]

So also a stamp designer, he is best known though for classics like this :

Pat Keely 433309
Pat Keely Navy

But I guess, when you are that good, you can turn your hand to anything…….
