Low, David Alexander Cecil, 1891-1963 :Excuse me, but did you hear a piercing scream? [2 December 1938]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0098

Two British ambulance men with a stretcher, asking a group of wolves if they just heard a piercing scream. The wolves are licking their lips and have gnawed bones on the ground in front of them. A text, top right, states 'Now comes the time for considering our obligations under the guarantee of Czechoslovakia's new frontiers given for Britain by the Prime Minister last August.' The cartoon indicates that Britain is too late to protect Czechoslovakia from the 'wolves' or German raids.
