The Duchess of Argyle had been photographed administering oral sex to a man whose head had been cropped from a photograph. Who was he? And was he a member of the government?

Winston Churchill. on 5 February 1965. The drawing was originally commissioned by the Times. Gerald sketched him from the public gallery in the House of Commons. He was shocked to see how he had deteriorated from the British Bulldog Churchill everyone knew. The Times refused to print the drawing because it would upset Churchill’s wife, Clemmie. Gerald had told the story to Peter Cook, who remembered it when Churchill died, and ensured it was used by Private Eye.

Harold MacMillan. This illustration was originally published inside an issue of Private Eye magazine in 1963. It marked the beginning of an era. It depicted the then Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan perched on an Arne Jacobson chair, naked and parodied the iconic photograph of Christine Keeler during the Profumo scandal. Cartooning of this audacity opened the way to others and liberated many who had not dared to go this far before. The drawing was reproduced on cover of the Private Eye Annual later that year and the Annual was then banned from four of Britain’s biggest book sellers including W.H. Smith.

Wilson right behind Johnson. Published on 30 April 1965, Gerald’s original version had Harold Wilson’s tongue up Lyndon Johnson’s bottom but Private Eye editor Richard Ingrams thought it a bit much. So this is the censored version.
