Don't panic Mr Mainwaring!

One of the current trends over here and on the net is a WW2 poster that has recently come to light and been used for everything from aprons to mouse-mats.

The posters message is very simple "Keep calm and carry on". Details of the original are to be found here.

Inspired by Glenda the Good Witch from the Octopode Factory, I've created my own variation on it.

For those who aren't over here, the title comes from Dad's Army, an old comedy series about the Home Guard.
