Commando Covers Break Cover In Aberdeen
Here's a good reason to take a trip to Aberdeen this summer. The
Gordon Highlanders Museum in the Granite City is displaying nearly
50 Commando cover art paintings. They'll be shown just as they left
the artist's drawing board, without lettering or any other
embellishments. Not many people get the chance to see them like
To give you a taste of what's in store for you, besdies a warm
welcome from the Highlanders, here are three of the pieces chosen
by the team in Aberdeen.
First up is Ian Kennedy's art for "Three...Two...One...Zero!"
Originally No 974 from October 1975, it was re-issued as No 2315 in
October 1989. The working title was "Frogmen".
To see the other two without title and headings, you'll just
have to get yourself to the Museum (which is only a 10-minute taxi
or bus ride from the city's main shopping centres).
The show opens on July the 9th and runs until the 30th of
November. There's a special exhibit concentrating on the part the
Gordons played in the North African campaign to mark the 70th
anniversary of the battle of El Alamein.
