Canadian Remembrance Day tribute to my artist Grandfather

I came across some sketches, photos and paintings my grandfather (John Lennox Butcher) did when he was in the War (1943-1946). The presentation is a tribute to him, but also a chance to see how a soldier, gifted in illustration, was able to find expression through his artwork during such challenging times.
