Welcome to the official Bruce Bairnsfather website, celebrating the work of the creator of the immortal 'Old Bill.'
The site includes material on all aspects of Bruce Bairnsfather's career, from its beginnings in the First World War right through to the Second World War and beyond. You can discover how his famous 'Fragments from France' began, and see examples of his cartoons published both in the UK and America. There are pages on the amazing number of collectables associated with Old Bill, and information on his various incarnations on stage and screen.
As of October 2018 the website is undergoing a major overhaul - the most significant update since it was set up 12 years ago - to give it a fresh look and make the most of the latest website technology. The revamp will take some time, but will enable www.brucebairnsfather.org.uk to continue to provide the most comprehensive online resource on Bruce Bairnsfather and his work.
During the upgrade some pages will show as 'under construction' but please check back regularly to see any additions.
In the meantime if you have any questions or comments about the website and its content, please let me know.
"Well, if you knows of a better 'ole, go to it!"
