A cartoon from September 1945 tackling the post-war political issues and, with foresight, hints at potential conflicts looming. Egypt and the Suez Crisis, the French leaving Indo-China and the Vietnam War, independence for India and conflict in Palestine. Britannia is portrayed as 'nanny' to these problems, plus the domestic situation with demobbed British troops requiring a return to employment.From a series of albums containing newspaper and magazine clippings, assorted ephemera and a diary, kept by Mrs Lucy Awdry of 14 Franconia Road, Clapham, for the duration of World War II and recording wartime life in London. From the Lambeth Archives Home Front project 2005.
