To Arms! (Fitted T-Shirt)

    "Believing that WWI was being fought by workers at either end and of a bayonet, Tom Barker wrote in July 1915 what could arguably be called Australia’s most influential anti-war poster.

    "The poster caused consternation among the God, King and Country brigade as soon they were put up by the I.W.W. they were torn down by police who surely had better things to do. Concerned about the casualties from the failed Gallipoli campaign and the beginning of public disillusionment with what was increasingly being seen as a trade war between Imperialist powers, the NSW Parliament found Tom Barker’s poster – “a more serious matter than Germans in our midst”. …

    "Tom Barker the editor of ‘Direct Action’ was arrested on the 3rd of September 1915 and charged under the NSW War Precautions Regulations Act with publishing a poster prejudicial to recruiting. He was held in jail for a week, bailed and eventually fined 50 pounds or 6 months imprisonment for producing the poster." [Barker later appealed and got off on a legal technicality.]
