1946 King George VI Certificate by 

In 1946, just after the end of the Second World War all school children, In Great Britain,(UK) were presented with a certificate like this. Did any Commonwealth children get them I wonder? I don’t know what happened to mine, (mother throw it out during one of her many moves?) and I wonder who still have theirs. I’m 75 on the 28th Sept. and it seems along time ago.

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    It is a long time ago Neil, but time seems to accellerate as we get older – if it’s going fast it must mean we’re enjoying life. My brain still thinks it’s in its 30s but most of the other bits are conking out. I reckon old George was pretty quick off the mark with his letter – can’t remember getting mine.

    Happy birthday my friend – I’ll treat you to coffee on Friday.

    PS to George. My son is 46 and I am old.

    Cheers Neil
