Latest drawings from my uni project, in which I am looking at my family history during the Second World War. The image are that of my grandfather as a child living in East Ham, London during WWII holding a wooden rifle made by his neighbours who were carpenters.
The next image is that of my grandfather with my great great grandfather White, my link to the R. Whites lemonade company.
And the last image is that of the Royal Navy battleship, H.M.S Royal Oak. My other great grandfather served on this ship and was on board when it was tragically torpedoed by a German U-Boat at Scapa Flow. Though he survived the sinking, he did swallow a lot of icy water and died later in a hospital of Hyperthermia.
