Carl Giles

Moving from London to Ipswich in 1943, Carl Giles worked as a war correspondent cartoonist for the Daily Express newspaper.  A motorcycle accident had left him blind in one eye and deaf in one ear, so he was rejected for war service, but his work reflected the lives of this involved in the war, including the first batch of soldiers to enter in East Anglia who were African – American labourers from the Southern States of America and the members of the engineering battalion.
