The Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig Featured Print

The Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig

"The Next Haig Convention" By the 23rd of October, Britain could almost taste victory and this picture by Arthur Ferrier, showing a cowed Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig, would be frighteningly accurate if it were not for the fact that the Allies demanded the Kaiser's abdication before they would discuss armistice terms. "Little Willie", the Kaier's eldest son, and the bulk of the Hindenburg complete a fairly dejected trio. Arthur Ferrier led a colourful life. Born in Scotland, he began his career as an analytical chemist, before becoming a cartoonist at the Daily Record in Glasgow. His move to London saw him contribute to Punch, London Opinion and tit-Bits as well as The Bystander and The Sketch in later years. He is best known for pioneering the glamorous cartoon strip girl, and illustrating 1940s and 50s theatreland. A great socialite and raconteur, his Times obituary referred to him as a "cartoonist, portrait painter, bon viveur and wit". Date: 1918

The Cenotaph unveiled, 1920

Page from The Sphere reporting on the unveiling of the Cenotaph in Whitehall by King George V on 11 November 1920. A temporary structure of wood and plaster had been built the previous year but it was decided a permanent building of Portland Stone should be built. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, it remains the focal point for Remembrance Day services today.
