This is the original Pen & Ink Wash by Gerry Embleton.

During the Franco-Prussian war in 1870 an attempt to get letters from Paris to the provisional Government in Tours goes disastrously wrong when thanks to prevailing winds the balloon lands in Norway.

Gerry Embleton's illustration shows the balloon flying dangerously low over a German army camp shortly after leaving Paris.
