Frank-ly speaking - postmark slogans of WW1

Sent from Plymouth to Birmingham in October 1918, this postcard must have gone face-up through the machine, the continuous postmark slogan reads:
FEED THE GUNS
WITH WAR BONDS

The postcard above, sent from Blackpool in July 1918 has the postmark slogan:
BUY NATIONAL
WAR BONDS
NOW


Inland postage had increased by that time from ½d to 1d.


It's very hard, probably impossible, to really imagine what it must have been like to be living at that time.
