Default Not Liverpool Scottish!!

Bought the attached on eBay for not a lot. It was described as a Liverpool Scottish item but none of the officers were in the Liverpool Scottish.

Turns out it is the officers of the WW2 10th ( Home Service ) Battalion so still pleased with it.

Peter,

Nice item, is it printed or hand drawn and coloured?

Simon.

The cartoonist is Fred May. Lots of references on the Internet like this:
