Just Getting into Our Stride

Date made: 1941

Description: Satirical cartoon drawn for Isle of Man Times newspaper. Shows year 1941 dawning, with British soldier & Uncle Sam (USA) getting into stride together.

This cartoon appeared on 4 January 1941, with the caption ' Just getting into our stride eh Sam? Yes John, and I am in step with you.' Uncle Sam carries spitfires under his arms (a reference to lend-lease of weapons) and the implication is that even though USA is not a combatant she is supporting Great Britain.
