"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.

Triumphant fanfare music plays in the background. Obviously there is immense comedic potential for this shot.
