This is a straight forward monochrome photographic print of a studio still-life study. It consists of red tulips, original monochrome photographic prints of a meeting between Prime Minister Churchill and President Roosevelt in WWII on board HMS King George V (which were kindly loaned to me to photograph and return). In the top right picture is Winston Churchill and the President of the United States of America is seated far left, bottom corner.
The "Zones of France," is a silk map that was issued to Commando Troops and RAF Pilots. This was kindly loaned to me by a former WWII British Army Commando. These maps could be folded up and were sometimes stitched into the clothing of the recipient to avoid casual detection by the enemy.
Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England.
