7th March 2022

With everything so s--- as the young say there are two options: reading about other conflicts, other people (cf. our WWII category here and in particular Few Eggs) or enjoying a good dose of escapism. This week on the Post we are going for the latter and for Humour here. First up Miss Buncle. The picture we have used (The Felixstowe to Ipswich Coach. 1940 by Russell Sidney Reeve 1895-1970 © Ipswich Borough Council Museum and Gallery) is in fact 1940 and therefore was painted in wartime, six years after Miss Buncle was written. But somehow it beautifully captures the atmosphere of that book.
