* A letter by the painter Solomon J. Solomon (1860-1927), who was influenced by Leighton and Alma-Tadema to paint large dramatic canvases. In the Great War he pioneered in camouflage painting of tanks, buildings and netting, receiving the rank of lieutenant-colonel from General Douglas Haig. Solomon obviously liked the idea that a drawing of his was used for The British Legion album in aid of Field-Marshall Earl Haig's appeal for ex-service men of all ranks, that was published in 1924 by E. Lonsdale Deighton.
