About this artwork

Cadell joined the Royal Scots in 1915 and produced a series of drawings of army life before leaving for service in France. In 1916 about fifty of these drawings were exhibited, whilst twenty were published in a book entitled ‘Jack and Tommy’, which was sold to benefit the Red Cross. These witty, quickly executed images depict soldiers and sailors on duty and on leave. This drawing shows an open top car with three figures inside – the title ‘Their Lordships’ implies that they are high ranking officials.
