Deceiving the invader as to the state of the tide
Illustration by William Heath Robinson (1872-1944); part of a series of humorous illustrations he produced for the Sketch during World War II. British beach goers perch nonchalantly on stilts at the seaside, pretending the tide is low, resulting in the Nazi landing parties disembarking in the deep water and drowning. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles during his lifetime. His weekly drawings featuring mind-boggling contraptions and designs were immensely popular.
