Le Mot Juste: WWI cartoon by H.M. Bateman Featured Print

Le Mot Juste: WWI cartoon by H.M. Bateman

"Le Mot Juste: A careful and economical person. Much given to niceness of expression. Trying to decide upon which adjective to risk his brown." This cartoon satirises how the British press are using ever more sensationalist language to describe the battles going on in Europe, with the man in the picture trying to decide which newspaper to buy as the only fundamental difference between them is the choice of adjective with which they describe the battle. Date: 1914

The over-enthusiasm of some sportsmen in the trenches Featured Print

The over-enthusiasm of some sportsmen in the trenches

"Libellous? - With a sporting battalion at the front: Highly imaginative drawings" The over-enthusiasm of Harry Low's sporting battalion certainly raises a smile. There were many such battalions, including the 1st Football Battalion (aka 17/Middlesex) and the Sportsmen's Battalion (23/Royal Fusiliers), which included two England cricketers as well as the country's lightweight boxing champion. Despite the mocking tone of this cartoon, the British greatly admired sporting ability and substantial coverage was often given to the many talented sportsmen who lost their lives, such as Anthony Wilding, the New Zealand-born tennis champion who was killed by a shell explosion at Neuve Chapelle in May 1915. Date: 1915
