A landlubber is an inexperienced sailor, and this is one of a cartoon series of US Navy military training aids during world war two called "Lubbers don't Live."These small posters tell the dangers of carelessness. This one has the poem:

We pause for Seaman Moore
He failed to close a water tight door
A mine that night sent the ship beneath foam
Now he never will get all his souvenirs home

The poster is printed in Black and white with green detail, nothing on reverse, ready for framing. We believe there were 14 in this original series, we only have this one.
