Here they Come Lads

I’ve always been fascinated by people and the shared link between time and space. So different were people’s views of life and war in the past. “For God and for Country!”, “God save the King!” These were the views of the commonwealth nations of this time. It was under these views that people laboured and endured hardships but it was with an understanding of a greater and higher good. With these views the boys from the backyards headed off with their mates on an adventure and became the heroes we recognize them to be today. This painting is a fabrication representing the truth and destruction of war these young men faced. Lest we forget.
