Pen and ink sketch by E V (Vernon) Pearce. A gentleman, identified as Colonel Grumpus stands on a hillside, enquiring 'Had a bad spill, sir?' of an aviator sitting amongst the wreckage of his aircraft. The aviator replies 'Yes, you see I was flying in the face of the wind...' and is interrupted by Grumpus who responds 'Humph, I should call it flying in the face of Providence'.
