The poster "Iron Bastion—Joint Defence By The Army And The People" portrays the concept of civilian-military defense, showcasing a powerful scene where a Chinese People's Liberation Army soldier is instructing a militia member on the use of a Type 56 carbine rifle. Behind them stands an ordinary citizen, symbolizing the seamless integration of the army, militia, and the general public. The essence of the poster is meant to capture the unity and collaboration between these groups.

Civilian-military defense refers to the unified organization of both the army and local militia, with the support of the civilian population, to jointly carry out defensive tasks. In peacetime, these tasks include patrol, reconnaissance, surveillance, air defense, counter-terrorism, and countering airborne threats, while in wartime, it involves jointly eliminating invading enemies. This strategy reflects the development of people's war and its strategic tactics in modern warfare.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
