    Hello. I have a piece of WW2 art likely signed as KERR. However, I’ve never been able to find TOM KERR signing, only printing his initials as TK or TOM KERR in bold print. Do you have any examples of him actually signing his name in cursive? Also, any clue when he was born? That also would help with this piece. Tom Kerr is noted to have first appeared in 1949, so it makes me wonder about this wartime propaganda piece.

      Hi Morgan, I see you left a comment on Lambiek too. No, is the quick answer, but I will keep my eyes open now you’ve asked.
      Wow! I hadn’t realised that there really is no biographical information for Tom Kerr. Even the wonderful Steve Holland on Bearalley has no more info. I’d love to see a scan if you were willing to share one Morgan.
      Thanks for writing,
      Norman

        Hello, Pasted below is the image. Most are guessing the signature is KERR, but nobody can confirm it. Whatcha think? Cordially, Morgan Wallace
