A good hand coloured Snaffles WWI military print 'The D.R.'. The lithograph shows a despatch rider on a motor cycle racing past two dead riders in the road, a sign saying "Do not loiter here, this spot is DANGEROUS", a wayside shrine with Jesus on the cross and with the caption 'Remarkable close to the old bus's 'ead to let the stuff go by. (Rudyard Kipling with the artist's apologies).'. In the bottom margin is a remarque of the despatch rider falling off his motor bike. The print is with the Snaffles blindstamp and is nicely framed in a black frame. Ca. 1915, This is when Snaffles spent the First World War period as a special artist in France.

Charles 'Snaffles' Johnson Payne (1884 – 1967) was an English painter who specialised in water colours, and who's subject matter was invariably equestrian (racing, hunting, polo and pig sticking), military or a combination of these. Snaffles had a very distinctive style by showing just one person in detail, in addition he added remarques and amusing captions to supplement the pictures and main title.
