Dead Stretcher Bearer


Recommended Posts

In one of the halls of the Imperial War Museum, Gilbert Rogers famous painting, The Dead Stretcher Bearer hangs. This vignette is based on that painting. It is in 120mm scale. Kreston Peckham, a well known master painter, recently completed painting it for me. As always, he did a phenomenal job! Hope you like it.

All the best,

SSgt Luna,

Many thanks for your comment. The chills. From a fellow vet that's a tall compliment. I'm sure that's the response Gilbert Rogers was looking for and I'm gratified that Kreston and I could duplicate it.

If you have an on-going interest in military figures, may I suggest two web sites: www.planetfigure.com and www.timelinesforum.com.

All the best,

Daniel R. Morton, Major, USAF, BSC

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
