This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Leslie Ashwell Wood.

The R08 was originally a fixed wing aircraft carrier, but was re-commissioned as a Marines carrier. She was involved amongst many other actions in the Suez Crisis.

Eagle Holiday Extra was a one off attempt by Hulton Press to capture a share of the lucrative summer special holiday comic market.

A marvellous example of Ashwell Wood's ability to paint precise and interesting semi-technical cut-away drawings. Please note that the art board has a 2 inch tear in it lower right part through the side-on view of the ship. Regardless of this the art is in very collectible condition.
