EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the year 1943, amidst the chaos and uncertainty of World War II. The image showcases a remarkable reconstruction drawing by Ivan Lapper, depicting the Bofors gun position at Pendennis Castle in Cornwall. As we gaze upon this graphic representation, we are transported to an era where defence and weaponry played a crucial role. The Half Moon Battery stands proudly in the foreground, its sturdy walls serving as a testament to human ingenuity and resilience during wartime. Positioned strategically on this historic site, the Bofors gun exudes power and strength, ready to defend against any potential threat that may have loomed over England's shores. Lapper's attention to detail is evident in every stroke of his pencil; each line meticulously drawn brings life to this wartime scene. The precision with which he captures the essence of these artillery pieces is truly awe-inspiring. As we reflect upon this photograph, it serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by countless individuals during those tumultuous years. It symbolizes not only their unwavering dedication but also their unwavering hope for peace amidst turmoil. Through Historic England's preservation efforts, we are fortunate enough to witness history come alive through images such as these. This print allows us to appreciate both the artistry behind Lapper's work and the significance of our collective past – reminding us never to forget those who fought bravely for our freedom.
