World War 1 'Beware of Female Spies' Poster Postcard

Beware of Female Spies

Women are being employed by the enemy to secure information from Navy men, on the theory that they are less liable to be suspect than male spies.  Beware of inquisitive women as well as prying men.

See everything
Hear everything
Say Nothing

Concerning any matter bearing upon the work of the Navy
Silence is Safety

A World War I poster warned Navy personnel to guard against the wiles of female agents.
