Joseph Simpson

Joseph Simpson (1879–1939) was a British painter, illustrator and etcher. This illustration by Simpson, entitled "Your Motherland Will Never Forget", was published by the Canadian War Records Office in the magazine Canada in Khaki. It depicts a personification of the "Motherland" welcoming back a First World War soldier returning victorious from the front, as suggested by the German helmets on the soldier's backpack. Published in Toronto between 1917 and 1919, the publication described the participation of Canadians in World War I and aimed to raise money for the Canadian War Memorial Fund.
