A piece of original Australian 'artwork' - an example of genuine toilet humour from the Second World War .

The picture tells the story: the punchline ('Handy little gadget you got there Dig') has still got some petrol in the tank. The black pencil drawing, with additional red and blue colouring, is done on the verso of a sheet of wartime ACF / YMCA notepaper (170 × 215 mm); it has one horizontal and three vertical creases, and a few trifling signs of wear; the item is mounted on plain paper with tiny pieces of double-sided tape on the verso (now bleeding through slightly); overall, a very evocative piece.
