Loose Lips Might Sink Ships

The “Loose Lips Might Sink Ships” slogan was coined by the US war office to let people know that they could inadvertently give information to the enemy. The US were aware of spys who reported to the Nazis during the war and wanted to stop the public from speaking about government information they may have been aware of. A lot of people were employed in the war effort in some shape or form and therefore the majority of people held some information of valuel. This poster links their “loose lips” to sinking ships.
