WW1 Postcard Humour

Some of the more attentive members of P-P may have noticed that it is a hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War. As our part of the commemorations, we have invited one of our most prolific writers, Roger Mayhew, to come along to the North Tavern on Monday October 13th at 7.30 to explain his collection of WW1 Comic Postcards.

With the onset of the Centenary Commemoration of the start of the war Roger has been actively engaged in sharing his collection –partly in an Exhibition at the Cartoon Museum and also by delivering presentations about comic cards to various groups.

In the first part of this session Roger will deliver a short presentation showing the range of humour employed by the cartoon artists. In the second part he will divide the audience into groups; give each group a copy of a WW1 postcard (not used in the presentation ) and ask them to devise and deliver a short improvisation based on the card.
