192 pp, 9 1/2" H. No date. Profusely illustrated with b&w cartoons. " 'Bing' drew from front-line experience and, with his character 'Herbie', gave Canada's soldiers many a chuckle in a grim business where chuckles were at a premium. He followed the antics of the military in the United Kingdom, in Italy and Northwest Europe, and his cartoons scored a hit wherever servicemen gathered to discuss the issues of the day. The best of the cartoons published in the 'Maple Leaf', many of them still bright in the memory of the overseas fraternity, plus some brand new 'episodes', have been corralled in this, the first full-scale edition of 'Herbie'. And adding a bit of spice to the brew are the observations on soldier life by J.D.M., the editorial initial tag used by Major Douglas MacFarlane, former managing editor of the 'Maple Leaf'. Wrinkle on page leaves 17/18 &18/20, book is lightly cocked, minor edge wear, small minor bump at top edge of front baord. Dust jacket has moderate edge wear with very small chips/tears - mostly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light rubbing and scattered scuffing on rear panel, several small edge tears with old lightly browned tape on inside edge, 1 1/2" scratch on spine.
