"A Motorcycle detachment of the British Army armed with "Tommy guns". An excellent wartime chalk drawing by Roland Davies.
The image of the Tommy gun was called upon to bolster the cause of freedom in England as well as in the U.S.A.: " Britain's new Airborne Army goes into action in Europe. Back Them Up!"
