For decades I have been enjoying the illustrations of the French Foreign legion by Mike Chappell, and Mike Chappell might be gone, but his work will last until the end of time


View attachment 6422
a man of immense talent. He also served in the British army for 22yrs. in various units ending up in the famous gloster regt. as a regimental Sargent/major. He and his regt. were among some of the first British army units to be sent into Northern Ireland 1969/70. Unofficially he was there also in 71/72. Doing sketches/drawings. Some of that has yet to be released. I doubt that it will be. He will be sorely missed by family friends and old army mates.
