In memory of a brave British nurse




I only found information that it was a family-owned paper company. Although at the beginning in connection with the kangaroo in the drawing I was thinking about some connections with Australia :)

I believe the kangaroo and other animals on the Cinderella are symbolic of the British Empire. The kangaroo is Australia, beaver is North America, tiger is Asia, and antelope is Africa.

The monument to Edith Cavell in the Tuileries was, I think, the only Parisian monument that Hitler ordered to be destroyed during the German occupation.
