Recent travels with sketch pad and camera

War Horse Ride - August 1014 - Under the royal patronage of HRH The Princess Royal, the War Horse Ride will commemorate the men and horses of the British Cavalry Division who played a major part in the early months of the Great War. Riders wearing original uniforms and representing one of the regiments and corps that comprised the Cavalry Division, will cover a route across France taking in many of the sites of the famous cavalry actions. A 13-pdr field gun will be drawn by a six-horse gun team. I shall be joining the team with sketch pad and camera for the duration of the ride.

Money raised will support The Not Forgotten Association.

The Falkland Isles - January 2014 - A visit with DCDC (MoD) A fascinating tour of many of the historical sites of the 1982 conflict. San Carlos Bay, site of the Task Force landings, with Fanning Head in the background, Goose Green, Darwin, Port Stanley and a climb to the top of Mt. Harriet (the route taken by 42 Cdo) with panoramic views towards Challenger, Mt. Kent, Two Sisters, Longdon and Tumbledown. A forty minute walk along Bertha's Beach, in the incessant gale-force winds, revealed two colonies of Gentoo Penguins, three King Penguins, looking rather out of place with their cousins and a wonderful display of dolphins surfing the waves. A water-colour which I painted of the view from Mt. Kent towards Two Sisters now hangs in the Officers' Mess. Thank you to all at Mount Pleasant and all at DCDC for such a memorable trip.

Afghanistan - August/September 2012 - Under contract to The British Army, an embed with The Light Dragoons to paint and capture their involvement in Afghanistan and commemorate the commitment, bravery and sacrifice of their soldiers and officers, over 4 operational tours, during the last 7 years. My journey took me from Lashkar Gar to Gereshk, to Kabul and to a number of PBs in Helmand. A truly amazing experience with some amazing, awe-inspiring guys. A privilege indeed which will stay with me forever and which has left me with an immense respect for all whom I met. 

Kenya - Samburu. Catching up with elephants. A second trip a month after the flood to stay in the newly re-opened Elephant Watch Camp

Kenya - Samburu. A visit during the massive flooding of March 2010 which destroyed 14 out of 15 camps, including Elephant Watch where I was staying. After being air-lifted  to safety, by the nearby British Army and various local helicopter companies who all pitched in to help, the trip continued in The Mara with somewhat depleted luggage and equipment, most of which having disappeared down the Ewaso Nyiro!  Oria-Douglas Hamilton, my wonderful hostess at Elephant Watch, kindly 'kitted me out' with a new wardrobe and my soon to be new friends at Serian in the Mara, lent me a camera and, not really being equipped for refugee artists, photo copy paper for sketching.
