"Rhodesian airman" Artist unknown, unknown date.

Catalogue ref: INF 3/356Links to the Catalogue

A realistic inter-allied/unity of strength concept drawing, depicting the uniformed upper body of a Rhodesian (now Zimbabwe) airman, with rifle. The artist has noted on the image that the printer should ensure that the tonal values of the image be maintained.

This was most likely a concept drawing of an individual figure for the Commonwealth ‘Together' poster, which depicted multiple servicemen marching in unison.
