Super compressed sans from classic SILENCE=DEATH poster

Anyone know what this super-compressed sans is? Similar to Gill Display Compressed or as if someone had squeezed Futura Condensed...!
thanks as ever for your expertise and help!

I can only confirm what you've already found by yourself. Looks like gill sans extra condensed bold to me.

Yes, that is Gill Sans Extra Condensed Bold.

You can see that if it is Gill, it has been heavily compressed further, and even then it isn't exactly the same as Gill. So perhaps edited/squashed Gill rather than another font?

Jan, I stand corrected — my font actually called Display Compressed...
