The Falklands War - The Helicopter Story

His next endeavor depicted the crucial role of the helicopter in the Falklands War. While researching the project, which took 4 years to complete, he visited The Falkland Islands three times, making trips to every spot where helicopters were involved in action. Forty-six of the paintings feature in his book 'The Helicopter Story of The Falklands Campaign' (ISBN 0-7153-9286-7). The paintings are spread through several collections, but the last nine originals were bought by The Falkland Islands after the artist's death and hang in the school library in Stanley, for the benefit of all islanders - a fact that would have given him great pleasure.
