Nice memories again, thanks Doug. And timely too with ANZAC day approaching.
My Dad used to like sharing a beer around the kitchen table with one of his mates from WW2 and I could read through his collection of wartime books and unit newspapers. There were often cartoons of Bluey and Curley in them. I think the books were called "Stand Easy" or something like that.
I wonder when Bluey and Curley stopped appearing in our newspapers? As you say, others picked up when Gurney passed away. I think they were still to be seen as late as the 1970's.
