Features an image of a woman (similar in appearance to statues of the Virgin Mary, wearing white robes, a blue mantle and a crown). She points upward (at the title of the poster) and leans her left hand on a large gold harp. Through its strings one can see a soldier in infantry uniform blowing a bugle, while others are in the background, shown beside a large artillery machine gun which has just gone off. In the background is depicted a small village beside a lake, with group of houses and a church spire. On lower right of this broadside poster is printed "6 /'15" [this broadside poster was issued in June 1915]. The music featured on the poster is a military bugle call instructing troops to "fall in" [assemble for inspection].
