The New Chindit Artist

The Army is developing an new unit called the Cultural Property Protection unit, this is to hunt down stolen art and to protect historic monuments in war time.  I applied for this job without much hope that I would get it as I am not an Art Historian.  However on meeting the unit, I was invited to be their Oil Painter instead.  So with great excitement I am now the only official Oil Painter in the British Army.  

My duties include painting the Chindit historical leaders, and also painting works to gift to friends of the British Army.  I may not technically be a CWA (Combat War Artist) but a Deployable Oil Painter is a pretty unbelievable job and I have already been sent to Estonia to paint the Freedom Parade and Song festival.
