Captain Bairnsfathers first meeting with Old Bill, WW1
This historic incident took place during the first battle of Ypres, but the Censor held stern views about battle pictures in those days, so that it is only now that we are happily able to place it upon record in print. Cartoon by Bernard Hugh recording the (fictional) first meeting of fellow cartoonist, Captain Bruce Bairnsfather, with the character who would make his name - "Old Bill'. Hugh pays a homage to Bairnsfather's most famous cartoon - The Better Ole. Date: 1919

Rabbits, I believe by George Studdy
Bonzo and brother cannot think what a nice round hole if for unless it be a rabbit's doorway! Bonzo, the comic, canine creation of George Studdy totally ruins the ninth hole on a golf course by digging it up. Credit line must read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./Mary Evan"

Bottlenose dolphins - blowing air bubbles underwater
Bottlenose dolphins - blowing air bubbles underwater (Tursiops truncatus). Distribution: Worldwide except polar regions. Complex play / creative behaviour: dolphins often play with the bubbles or rings of air they create, both visually and by using sonar. They appear to enjoy biting the vortex rings, so that these burst into many seperate normal bubbles, which then rise more rapidly to the surface. They also play games, diving through the bubble rings for fun!
