This cartoon was provided to us by Brian Withers. His father, Ernest Withers served in Hood from 1933 to early 1941. This, and the following two cartoons were found in his ditty box. We are unsure of the artist's name, but they may possibly be the work of "Mickey" Glenn- Hood's last and best known comic artist. Click to enlarge.
