Title
Somewhere in France
Description
"The Landlord tells of his Service."

"M. Raemaekers does not always derive inspiration from concrete historic examples. As in this cartoon, which belongs really to the region of national emotion rather than political or historical comment, he takes a subject, and by the intensity of this line achieves a poignancy strongly in contrast with the penetrating irony he can display. Here we see the old poilu telling one of those stories of prowess in earlier days, probably those of 1870, with which we shall all now be familiar whenever the mood of reminiscence is upon us."
