The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

Colonel Blimp was a cartoon character made famous by David Low in the pages of the Evening Standard. Pompous and petulant, with a huge walrus moustache, he preached about the affairs of the world from the comfort of his Turkish bath: a man out of touch. But, as he himself asks: “How do you know what sort of a fellow I was when I was as young as you 40 years ago?”
