War Illustrated April 17th 1942: On such ships as this Britain’s cause depends

Here’s another piece by Haworth. Page 633 of vol 15 (part 126) shows Haworth’s drawing of a cargo steamer as well as anti-aircraft guns, liferaft and a lifeboat

This view reflects the 1950s comic Eagle which had a centrespread cutaway by Fisher, Batchelor and Ashwell Wood amongst others. Nice use of perspective to fit a whole craft on one page alongside other materials

The cover of this issue shows MacArthur and Wainwright standing tall
