    Zec almost got the Daily Mirror closed as his cartoons pulled no punches and sometimes did not follow the Government Line.

    The caption on the first one stated 'The price of petrol has gone up one penny - official'

    I've always admired ZEC in particular. A print of the "Don't Lose it Again" cartoon hung on my wall for many a year. A powerful cartoon that should never be forgotten.

    Giles Cartoons are still republished and have a timeless quality about them. Carl Giles was a war cartoonist at the front in WWII for the Express and Sunday Express

    Not a cartoon, but I couldn't find a better place to put this up so please move this at will.

    In CHURCH BELLS (RINGING) (Hansard, 17 December 1942)

    45. Mr. Driberg
    asked the Prime Minister whether he can now make any statement concerning church bells, having in mind both the general demand for a more effective form of invasion warning and the immediate desire of many of the public that the bells shall be rung on Christmas morning?

    The Deputy Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)
    It is hoped that an announcement will be made very shortly.

    Mr. Driberg
    Does the right hon. Gentleman recall that a week ago he said that there was no danger of the question not being settled before Christmas, and is he aware that Christmas is coming?

    Commander Locker-Lampson
    Will the right hon. Gentleman ring the bells if there is an announcement of the death of Hitler?
