This New Zealand born artist came to Farnham as a camouflage painter during the Second World War. While here he executed these fine paintings of wartime workers making munitions at the old Crosby Doors factory. The artist is best known as a glass engraver, having worked at Coventry and Guildford Cathedrals and these are rather unusual examples of his painting skills. The images remind us of the important role women played during the war in manufacturing ammunitions on the home front.
