    Gunn joined the Navy as a Boy and left as a Captain. He was a talented natural artist and in the 70s executed a number of paintings showing life in the WW1 RN, which are now in the National Art Collection.

    They have a certain naïve charm but a little two dimensional.

    Primitive yet instructional, a devilish lack of spatial awareness in all of them, but compensating in their somewhat schoolboyish disregard of perspective and scale, all of which lends a certain charm to what other wise was a monkish exsistence by the particpating personel.
