Junk to Build Bombs, 1942

From The Chatsworth Times
August 1942

Bomb ‘em with JUNK

Let's blast Japan–and Germany–and Italy–with the chain of lightning of destruction that can be built from the scrap in our cellars, attics and garages, on our farms and in our places of business.

Scrap iron and steel, other metals, rubber and waste materials. It will all be used to make tanks, ships, planes and the fighting weapons our boys must have.

It is needed at once.

Sell it to a junk dealer–give it to a charity or collection agency–take it yourself to the nearest collection point– or consult the Local Salvage Committee...

If you live on a farm and have found no means of disposing of your Junk, get in touch with the

County War Board or your farm implement dealer. Throw YOUR scrap into the fight!

Junk Needed for War
Scrap Iron and Steel
Other Metals–Rubber–Rags–
Manila Rope–Burlap Bags.
Waste Cooking Fats.
