As the Artist Might have Drawn it by H. L. Oakley Featured Print

As the Artist Might have Drawn it by H. L. Oakley

Silhouettes by Captain H. L. Oakley, showing two opposing views of the Great War - as the artist might have drawn it, and how the censor would certainly prefer it. The artist sees a patrol uncomfortably crawling through the mud on their bellies in contrast to an optimistic charge by British soldiers. Staff at GHQ are seen lounging in armchairs enjoying drinks and smoking cigars as opposed to pouring over maps, and while the artist depicts an issue of rum, the censor prefers Tommies to be seen drinking tea in the trenches. Date: 1919
