Wonderful atmospheric painting.  My late husband was a member of 2 Para for many years in the 60's and he would have loved this.  It was also on his " to do" list to visit this bridge but sadly it was not to be.

Very nice work. at one time the graves of those that fell in their Contries service were held in the highest respect,   now not so much. The war cemetery that holds my uncles grave was vandalised with most of the graves spray painted with various slogans and symbols

Even some living veterans are living in shop doorways - hellish state of affairs whatever has brought them down so much.
