I have a watercolor passed down from my father, (Neil Sommerville) by this artist. It states on the back, Turk Entrenched Positions. Sketch looking Northeast, descriptive of the country in front of our firing line. I would very much like to see it go to a place of relevance to be appreciated as it should be. Is this of any interest ?
