I looked past the 1928 tommy gun (without cutts compensator?)
And saw a highly religious well thought out message about the baptism of fire that these men took in the first wave.

the water acting as both a setting for the picture and a large font.

a strongly moving picture and quiet honestly not one I thought Bob capable of. But the background merges with subject in a sympathetic manner whilst not taking any of the message away.



Its the significance in the number of landing craft =3. Obviously the holy trinity has been displayed watching over these men. The missing spade.... the finger pointing to heaven.. the two chaps desperately paddling out of their depth looking for salvation..... Does the water pouring from both signify the full immersion. Or is there a spiritual message of how the models cleansed their souls and sacrificed old uniforms during the pilgramage to the beaches of normandy hidden in there too.


Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

This is my first uniform I have put together, really enjoyed collecting it all. I have most of the webbing but obviously I am not wearing it.

Recently I was fortunate enough to be invited to duxford for a private photograpy course.

Initially I was to be playing with a Type IX Spit, but it got changed at the last minute. Hence the Mk1 Spitfire, and late war flying gear. Otherwise a fantastic day. Just waiting for the pics of me sitting in the cockpit with the old girl spun up. ;)

Really pleased with this one. Recreating a famous picture taken of Lt. Jack Reynolds and Signalman George Parry plus an unknown South Stafford being marched into captivity at Arnhem.

Massive thanks to the German that helped us out at Peak Rail. He was a representing a member of Gross Deutschland (sorry we didn't get his name).
