This postcard was issued by the National and Local Government Officers Association (NALGO) to challenge the British government's priority of financing the military rather than healthcare. The top portion of the black and white postcard shows a military plane above the clouds, entering the frame at an angle. It has just shot a missile. At the bottom of the postcard is text describing insufficiencies in healthcare due to lack of government funding: closed wards in newly built hospitals, hospital closures, fewer beds, and long waits for operations. It notes that between 1981 and 1984 military defense spending rose 30%.
