BON VOYAGE RONALD SEARLE
Ronald Searle died on 30/12/11. He was the greatest cartoonist ever to have lived and it was an honour to have served on the same planet as him (and with you of course - but it's getting a little crowded now don't you think?) Searle lived to see 91, which was good going for a man who had survived forced labour on the Burma Railway - and he was bloody good at drawing cats too . . .
