    I don't know if you guys are familar with Giles (used to be a cartoonist for the Daily Express) but I recently got hold of the entire collection (oooh yes)

    and they start in 43 - 44 and his observations are priceless, now I'm not sad enough to scan them in for you but luckily someone esle has - well worth a look :fag:

    Some very funny cartoons period. They maybe dated, but they still raise a good giggle.

    Sad to think that British comic "highlights" is the Viz and the Dandy. How the mighty have fallen.

    Glad to be of service, somethings though never date and his little takes on the Nazi machine and the relationship for example between Hitler and Mussolini are brilliant!
