I am happy to say that I am the winner of the WW1 Surrey Remembers competition in association with the Surrey Heritage fund.
40 limited edition screen prints will be made of the work to be auction off in a high profile event.
Title: Where Youth And Laughter Go
The poem below inspired the title of my work.
Poem By Siegfried Sassoon
Suicide in the trenches
I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.
In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.
You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.
