I got this from ebay last year. published in 1989 it has 68 pages and alternates Broons and Oor Wullie strips from the war years with items from the Sunday Post. There is also a nice painting by Watkins of the Broons at home. It says the watkins original from 1939 has never been published in book form. Its a two page spread so have to scan in two halves:

When I went to DC Thomson last year they gave me this as a poster, with another one which had part of it used for the Broons and Oor Wullie 1940s-50s reprint book last year. (The Bairn in the sea)

The seaside pic was the other image used for the jigsaw puzzles.
