Watercolour by Colin James Ashford, Cambridge Flying School Avrotutor
Colin James Ashford (b.1919) - Avrotutor, Cambridge University Air Training Squadron, watercolour, signed lower right, with Kronfeld Aviation Arts Society label verso. It has a nice provence, being bought on 16th November by Air Commodore R.E.W. Harland in 1968.
There is some mild foxing on the paper but it is on in the clouds and sky, not on the aircraft so does not detract from the image.
