A little WWII humor

Proof that the military enjoys its humor!!!!

Two on a Rant

Mymom took a lot of pictures, saved a lot of pictures, and clipped cartoons during WWII (1940’s).   Here are 2 I thought you might enjoy:

cartoon2 001

The images were scanned while in the plastic protectors.  Remember, these a cartoons from a 1941 newspaper.  I’m not about to remove a 73 year old newspaper clipping from  43 year old plastic.  

I’ll end this blog post with style, specifically the style worn by my maternal grandfather in 1940:

  2. I have several WWII era cards & postcards from my grandparents’ old things with these types of military humor on them. Things sure were different – and so much more patriotic! – back then. 🙂

  5. Great piece of military humour from days when humour was funny.
    Old military humour had a certain irreverence about it but boxed in respect.

  7. My father, a member of the Colorado National Guard, was called into active duty with the 45th Division in 1940 It was quite an adventure for him and a lot of young men just out of high school. They spent Christmas at Fort Sill, Oklahoma before moving to Camp Barkeley in Texas. Thanks for posting the cartoons.
