Artist and cartoonist. Born Cambridge and studied art. In WW2 at the start of 1942 he was in the Royal Engineers in Singapore which fell to the Japanese and he was taken prisoner and spent the rest of the war as a POW. During this time, close to death himself, he documented the appalling conditions in drawings which he kept hidden and then published on release. This self-portrait dates from 1943.
Many people know his illustrations for the St Trinian's books.
