It’s funny how one piece of work can attract you. The picture scanned from London Opinion was just like that. I couldn’t understand the joke, but suspected it had something to do with class. In the hope of learning soemthing I searched for “Slate Club” and found:
Definitions of slate club
1. [n] -(British) a group of people who save money in a common fund for a specific purpose (usually distributed at Christmas)
A savings club!
Now I presume that anyone in the RAF is seen as a bit better off than someone having to put by money for a Christmas hamper. Have I done this to death? I love his strong lines, certain lines and the caricatured faces. However looking at his other work on the Net, I can’t see the same thing, maybe it’s just me.
Anyway, it took a while to understand the signature and make out this Stan Terry not Stan Jerry! There are pictures of his cartoons all over the Net – ten are on punchcartoons.com. Unfortunately I can’t find anything about the gentleman! Even the excellent Cartoon Archive has nothing!
