"A Night Sortie from Mafeking"

From a contemporary drawing by R. Caton Woodville
in Eileen K. Wade, Baden-Powell, London, 1944

This drawing of "A Night Sortie from Mafeking" was most likely done as a newspaper illustration. While perhaps a bit idealized and melodramatic, it is typical of reporting and illustration in the news of the day.
