Following the recital there will be a special exhibition by Internationally renowned Adelaide Military Artist, Barry Spicer on display. Barry 's main focus is painting military subjects. His inspiration was initiated when at the age of 6, he saw the deadly aeroplanes in the movie "The Battle of Britain." His interest in drawing immediately changed to drawing aircraft and anything that flies. Today, his art work includes drawings and oil paintings and is of such a high standard he has won numerous commissions.

Your Comment
I've studied Sassoon's and Owen's poems; I think they are amazing. They have very different styles, but both reveal the absolute truth and atrocity of the first world war.
