War Plane Phone Cases
The Great Emu War was an unsuccessful 1932 military operation undertaken in Western Australia. Soldiers were armed with Lewis machine guns in an attempt to curb the population of the emus, but while a number of the birds were killed, the emus proved too smart and agile for the humans, and the birds emerged victorious. Emus remain plentiful in the areas outside of Perth to this day.

part 2 of my dogs of war illustrations. This time it's a Sherman tank with a crew full of fuzzy hounds. The Sherman was a medium tank manufactured in America and fielded by the allies in WW2. This version is a firefly which is a British modification sporting a different turret and a 17 pounder gun that was more capable of knocking out a heavy German tank like the Tiger than the standard Sherman armourment.
