Abstract:

Clearly the favourite character of Canada's overseas troops during World War II, "Herbie" had a penchant for getting into some of the most bizarre predicaments imaginable. With feet that generally led to trouble and a nose like a disillusioned banana, Herbie provided Canadian soldiers with a daily ration of laughter at a time when humour was often at a premium. No figure before or since boosted so effectively the spirit of Canadians overseas. As J.D. MacFarlane, Editor of The Maple Leaf, stated so aptly, "War can be funny as hell. Things happen to soldiers that shoudn't happen to a human -- crazy situations that add touches of humour to an otherwise grim business ... Herbie helped to win the war with laughs."
