Siegfried Sassoon

Fuhrer

This picture which appears to be pencil and watercolour has the following dialogue:

Said Rud, ‘you call yourself a Fuhrer;
But in my proud opinion you’re a
(To quote my friend Field-Marshal Foch)
Repulsive bloody little Boche.’
 
I’m not sure if Rudyard Kipling ever met Hitler, however I am sure this is the sort of thing he might have said to him!
 
(I love the way Sassoon rhymes ‘Fuhrer’ with ‘You’re a’)
