Fort Garrys On The March
With spring now upon us, it was time to switch out my header image for something fitting for the spring. This one was taken last May at Dow's Lake during the Tulip Festival.
I showed you an enlarged version of this a couple of days ago. Major-General The Right Honourable J.E.B Seely CB, CMG, DSO is the title of this dramatic painting by Munnings, depicting a formidable Canadian commander on his horse, Warrior. The story in the accompanying panel concerning Seely's batman (personal servant) made me smile.
