Lot Essay

Vaughan, who served as a non-combatant in the Pioneer Corps, made sensitive and gentle drawings of barrack life and of his fellow soldiers, emphasising involuntary shared situations. As Alan Ross comments, 'it is not the most dashing or glamourous side of military life, but probably it is the most real' (see A. Ross, Colours of War, London, 1983, p. 123).
