Keep Calm and Carry On: Things I never knew
I love Keep Calm and Carry On and all the merchandise they produce but something I never knew (and maybe I'm just behind the ball on this one) but "Keep Calm and Carry On" was actually a propaganda poster produced by the British Government in 1939 at the start of World War II. I had no idea!
But the poster was never used and then the design was rediscovered in 2000 as a decorative theme for merchandise products. I thought it was quite interesting! Unfortunately the products are quite expensive here in New Zealand and so far I don't have any but I wouldn't mind one of those mugs.
