Chasing Elva - the travelling Artist

War Work Gallery

This is just a small selection of the portraits Elva did during her time at Biggin Hill.  Amusingly, when word of her artistic talents reached the appropriate people, Elva was put to work painting the registration plates on on the vehicles.

Elva chose her own subjects and her work depicting life on an RAF base is the largest of its kind.
