About Geoffrey Willans

After active service during the Second World War he joined the BBC as a feature writer. He died in 1958, at the age of 47. Ronald Searle was born in 1920 and educated at the Cambridge School of Art. He was a hugely successful graphic artist and pictorial satirist, and also the creator of the wonderfully wicked St. Trinians. He died in 2011, at the age of 91.
