Norwich Cathedral hosts sketches of brave soldier 

The Norwich Cathedral Hostry is welcoming a new exhibition on the theme of remembrance in November, the work of a young artillery officer from North Norfolk, killed shortly after D-Day.

Wartime Watercolours is a centenary exhibition of the work of Julian Cory-Wright, who spent four years training in gunnery in remote parts of Britain where he drew and painted everyday military activities, as well as the wild landscapes around him.

Julian Cory-Wright painted and sketched all his life. At school he learnt lino cutting and printing: his inspiration drawn from Brancaster, his much loved North Norfolk home.

 
Julian's last sketches were made shortly after D-Day on board the ship taking him to Normandy, where he lost his life on June 26, 1944.
 
The exhibition is being supported by the Royal Artillery Association and will be on display at the Hostry from Friday November 4 to Monday November 21. More info here
