WW1 Generals and Soldiers Cartoons from Punch magazine by Claude Shepperson

Major-General (addressing the men before practising an attack behind the lines). "I want you to understand that there is a difference between a rehearsal and the real thing. There are three essential differences: First, the absence of the enemy. Now (turning to the Regimental Sergeant-Major) what is the second difference?" Sergeant-Major. "The absence of the General, Sir." (a WW1 cartoon showing a parade of soldiers and commanding officers during a drill)
