Tell me, Admiral, what, if anything, are the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Fleet up to just now?
1958 1958 - Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 16 July 1958, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Pen and black ink on wove paper. On 15 July Eisenhower had authorized Operation Blue Bat for US intervention in the crisis in Lebanon. Forty vessels of the Sixth Fleet, the United States navy's European force, operated in support of around 14,000 troops on the ground. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.
