That's an excellent illustration, Neil! Your father is extremely talented. Does he do drawings for books etc?

Cheers Mark,

Funnily enough, one features in a newly published book about our towns VC recipient -Todger Jones (the book release coincided with the statue unveiling)

It's really just a hobby but he has done numerous commissions in the past and I've recently had some of his work made into ltd edition prints.

Thanks for the comments guys and I'm glad it's of interest.

AA - There are plenty of others but unfortunately they all depict more recent times.
