Lewisite was actually primarily used by the American forces during WW1, but was produced by the Japanese before WWII, and used against the Northern Chinese and Koreans during their conquest of those areas. Though this poster is in the same style as the other chemical warning posters (from WWI), Lewisite was not used as a chemical weapon by the Allies until WWII.
It causes pus-filled blisters (like mustard gas), and without protection can cause pulmonary edema. Sufficient exposure and absorption causes liver necrosis.
