Scope and content
This is a reproductive copy of an original editorial cartoon published in the London, England Evening Standard, and probably given to Mackenzie King by the Standard's former publisher, Lord Beaverbrook.
The plane depicted in this cartoon is a de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk, first flown only in 1946. The 1940 "baby" represents the infant Commonwealth Air Training Plan, which by 1945 had graduated 130,000 pilots and crew as part of the War Effort.
