"Send for the Artist ..." Maurice Conly. 54 Years as the Air Force Official Artist. As narrated to and written by Paul Harrison RNZAF. 'As a child, Maurice Conly had two main passions: painting and flying. When he joined the RNZAF in 1941 to train as a pilot, it look as though he would be leaving his art behind. However, a freak accident left Maurice unfit for active flying service and a chance to visit the offices of Contact, the RZNAF magazine, redirected his career. Before long he was able to combine painting and flying as the RNZAF Official Artist. Maurice narrated his memories to Squadron Leader Paul Harrison, and together they have compiled this fascinating collection. Spanning over fifty years, these are the unique experiences of the Official Artist for the RNZAF. The dust jacket has light to medium general wear and the book has some liquid damage but overall a tight and tidy copy. Previous owners name or inscription on inside front page. A VERY LARGE BOOK THAT WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT.
