The Big Test - 606 Not Out

Date made: 1940

Artist: Miller, Harold 'Dusty'

Description: Satirical cartoon drawn for Isle of Man Times newspaper. Shows RAF man batting Nazi plane in cricket match. This is a reference to 606 enemy aircraft destroyed.

This cartoon appeared on 17 August 1940 albeit with the caption 'The Big Test - 727 not out'. This edition of the newspaper reported that 727 enemy aircraft had been shot down to date, clearly the official figure had changed between Dusty producing the cartoon, and its publication.
