Willy Lambilliotte was born in Tamines, Belgium at May 14, 1936. His first comic was rejected by the Dupuis publishing company but still he managed to get a job over there. After unsuccessfully submitting his first work Sandy & Hoppy (starring a kangaroo) for five years, he managed to get it published in 1959. After the death of Louis Salverius he was asked to draw Les Tuniques Bleues/De blauwbloezen (The Yankees). Beside this comic also draws Arme Lampil (Poor Lampil), a comic featuring the comics creating duo Lambil and Cauvin.
Raoul Cauvin (born in Antoing, Belgium in 1938) wanted to draw comics himself but he feared that he would never reach the skill of his colleagues. Therefore he started writing scripts for comics. Raoul Cauvin writes scripts for Agent 212, Arme Lampil (Poor Lampil), Les Tuniques Bleues/De blauwbloezen, G. Raf Zerk, Sammy, Women in white and many more.
