My biggest thanks goes to Dr Martin Polley for his time, patience and unfailing enthusiasm for this dissertation. Thanks also goes to Derek Bunyard for time spent discussing some artistic aspects.

Thanks is also given to the trustees of the Imperial War Museum (IWM), the Mass-Observation (M-O) archives, and the Public Record Office (PRO). Particular thanks for help goes to Jenny Wood and Michael Moody of the Art Department, and the Reading Room staff, at the IWM, and to Joy Eldridge, Tim Graves and Julie Applin at M-O.

Thanks also goes to departments at King Alfred’s College: the Martial-Rose Library as the repository of many books; and the reprographics centre for their help with photocopying and binding.

Also, a very big thank you to Glenn Tyreman for allowing me to monopolise his computer when my printer ‘gave up the ghost’ two days before the deadline.

Last, but by no means least, a big ‘thank you’ to my parents, for their encouragement, and for funding my way through the course.
