L Ashwell Wood's King George V Class Battleship
by Jeremy Briggs
As a follow up to the piece on Eagle artist Leslie Ashwell Wood's preliminary pencil drawing of the 6 Pounder anti-tank gun of World War Two, we have a further preliminary pencil sketch of his dating from the same period of a King George V Class battleship of the Royal Navy. Unlike the 6 Pounder prelim, which was used for an explanatory illustration, this battleship prelim shows off the type of artwork that Wood is best known for, the cutaway.
That is something that we still have to discover.
