Wright produced a series of over 160 illustrations or pin-ups for The Sketch during the 1940's. David Wright's Lovelies proved hugely popular and adorned practically every military mess, bunker, dormitory or club room in the country during World War II

The Crowd, Band and Police at the F.A. Cup Final, 1923
Photograph of the crowd at Wembley Stadium before the start of the 1923 F.A. Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. This was the first Cup Final held at the then brand-new Wembley Stadium, which had been built in 300 days at a cost of 750, 000. Before the match began a crowd of about 100, 000 (most without a ticket) stormed through the gates and into the stadium. This meant that there was approximately 200, 000 people in a ground designed for 127, 000. The photograph shows the scene as the Band (on right) play the National Anthem and the few mounted policemen attempt to maintain order. Prominent, on his grey horse, is Constable Storey who played a large part in removing the crowd from the pitch and allowing play to start, 40 minutes late"
