D-DAY, 6 June 1944

 

The top painting

Two old comrades sit on a park bench on Remembrance Day, wearing their poppies and campaign medals.

 

Behind them stands a young soldier.

 

Is he a lost brother or friend, or is he one of these old soldiers as he was on D-Day?

 

The painting in the background is not a replica of the photo that lies beneath it but shows landing craft approaching the beaches of Normandy and creates a link between the figures, D-Day and the newspaper and suggests the mayhem that lies ahead.
