Ronald William Fordham Searle was born in 1920. He enlisted in the Royal Engineers at the outbreak of the Second World War, spending part of the time in Kirkcudbright, on the west coast of Scotland. Here he encountered evacuees from St. Trinnean’s, a progressive girls’ school situated in Edinburgh. This encounter resulted in his first cartoon for Lilliput in 1941 and developed into one of his most famous creations and although he changed the name from the Gaelic to St. Trinian’s, the school, and it’s headmistress, were the brunt of many jokes till the school’s closure in 1946.
