"FAGS FOR FIGHTING FORCES" WAR PROCLAMATION A proclamation promoting Canada's WWII "Fags For Fighting Forces" war effort which sent "fags" (cigarettes) to Canadian soldiers fighting around the world. Shot begins with the Canadian crest and dissolves onto a parchment paper proclamation (which scrolls upward) announcing the "unsung labors of the Canadian Postal Corps...to direct that flow of Fags for Fighting Forces....so essentially needed for the boys over there."
