Some of the strongest posters recruiting for the Free Corps came in Germany's Eastern regions. Rumors continued to spread that the Peace Conference would re-create a Polish state with large chunks of German territory being included.

As protection against this threat, posters such as this one called upon the local population to join the para-miliatary groups which were springing up.

The graphics show a determined soldier, fully armed, raising a sign calling for volunteers.
