A R Christmas, Crewe + France 13/11/18
Super, I love little glimpses into the past like this and who-ever drew this had a great talent, I wonder if he went on to use it. There was a regiment called the Artists Rifles and had loads of well known artists fighting in it, changed days.
A real piece of history ! What a find Ian.This kind of work should be on display in a museum for people to see and read all about it.Wonderful ! Great idea to post it on Flickr too.
What a lovely set … this one really made me smile, the Officer making a fool of himself just when he wants to look suave 🙂
Beautiful !! Great story too TFS

this one is simply adorable.. Oh my!! wonder who drew this.
It is a bit like a What The Butler Saw machine…
Its superb …..really …..surely a museum would be interested in such a human object with connections to the great war.
Fascinating slice of history, indeed it does deserve to see the light of day!
These are brilliant . . . don’t know why but I love all this bygone stuff. This lot reminds me of the lovely sketches at Plas Newydd by Rex Whistler which is a sort of documentary of the times, and the underlying love story (his love for Lady Caroline Paget). Of course, Whistlers paintings/murals are stunning works of art, but there are numerous sketches that are simpler but delightful. As Sonja says, wouldn’t it be brilliant to trace some of the relatives ;o)
Great stuff Ian…………….thanks for this peak in the past man!!!
Mavellous stuff – hope there is more to come?
There is so much artistic talent shown in these few pages, totally absorbing.
Superb presentation as always Ian.
You are a wealth of knowledge, superb
I find it fascinating that this was made two days after the Armistice.

fabulous memento of times long gone
You are a lucky man to get hold of this, and us, for you sharing on flickr. The people of that era had a much more refined way of writing and drawing as is evidenced by this excellent set of images on your stream. Nice.
What a marvelous saucy sketch and write up ^_^. Thank you so much for taking part in Jackanory Weekly my friend ~_^

that must be what Pauls like when he sees French Maid outfits!
It is what I am like, dunno about Paul!
Thanks for viewing these pages Ang, and I am very grateful too for the effort you have made with the group. Paul is too, I know coz he told me, you’re a star.
Wonderful cartoon and what an interest snippet of history. Hope we see more from the album.
Thanks Bill. Alas these were the only copies I made, these few pages. Placing the album on the scanner risked loosening the pages from the spine so I only dd a handful.
