WWII cartoons by "Pont"

And my favourite:

From Pont (London:  Collins, 1942).

"Pont" (after Pontifex Maximus) was the nom de plume of Graham Laidler, chosen because, when initially preparing for a career as an architect, he did not want his actual name tainted by his side work as a cartoonist.  He went on to become one of Punch's most celebrated cartoonists. Born in 1908, he died tragically young in 1940 of polio.
