Angus McBride

I was saddened to learn of the recent death of the superlative military artist Angus McBride. Like many people I would sometimes buy an Osprey book purely on the basis of his wonderful illustrations. I am lucky enough to own one of his paintings, of Boadicea, done for Look & Learn magazine in 1973. Although in monochrome it has the animation, character and wonderful composition of all of his work.

Angus, you will be missed!
