Cartoon criticising dogs given luxury food in wartime, WW1

One of the horrors of war. "And did ums tink their mumsie would waste her money on the horrid war and rob her popsy-wopsies of their ickle nicy-picie" An illustration by George L. Stampa criticising society ladies who lavished expensive food on their pet dogs during wartime, despite food shortages. The cartoon specifically alluded to a recent court case in 1915 where a lady dog-fancier was told by Mr Justice Avory that at a time when every shilling in the country was required for the purpose of preserving our very existence as a nation, it was rather shocking to hear of such sums as 500 being wasted on ladies pets). Date: 1915

The Maharajah of Patiala

Bhupinder Singh (1891 - 1938) was the ruling Maharaja of the princely state of Patiala from 1900 to 1938. He is perhaps the most famous Maharaja of Patiala, best known for his extravagance, and for being a cricketer. He served on the General Staff in France, Belgium, Italy and Palestine in the First World War as an Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel, and was promoted Honorary Major-General in 1918 and Honorary Lieutenant-General in 1931. He represented India at the League of Nations in 1925, and was chancellor of the Indian Chamber of Princes for 10 years between 1926 and 1938, also being a representative at the Round Table Conference. He married ten times, and had 88 children by his wives and concubines
