The birth of "Fragments": Scribbles on the farmhouse walls.

Bairnsfather, who had once trained as an artist, was much in demand to draw pictures for his colleagues while in France and eventually, he sent a picture to the Bystander. It was published on 31 March 1915. Bairnsfather would eventually go on to contribute hundreds of cartoons to the magazine which were later released as compilations known as Fragments from France.
