I am assuming this position is in Oxford, UK, even though you are using Uncle Sam, the bloke in the picture above?

@ShalimarTroy

Yes, it is indeed in Oxford. Point taken about Uncle Sam, we just couldn't resist that 'join us' aesthetic!

Hello:

If the job is in UK why not used "Lord Kitchener Wants You" poster instead?

Yes perhaps you are right, but having sourced that image for another article recently, I stumbled upon this.

I didn't think a poster could have such murky beginnings!

This entry makes no mention of the 'fraud' allegation. It does, however, show some interesting spin-off posters used in other countries, inspired by the Kitchener one.
