Roberts & Leete Sports Day
22 August 1908
We are very grateful to Brian Jeffels who sent us these images of a firms 1908 sports day programme. The firm was Roberts and Leete Limited designers and printers. This company produced many notable WW1 posters as well as publicilty material for several well known companies such Underground Electric Railway Company (London Underground), Guinness and Bovril.

We believe that the firm Roberts & Leete Ltd was closely connected with Alfred Ambrose Chew Leete (1882–1933) the graphic artist, who drew the image later used for the famous recruiting poster of Lord Kitchener with his out stretched arm pointing - Britons [Kitchener] wants you: join your country's army!
