Danger at Depth

In 2009 the Trustees of The Vernon Monument Charitable Trust commissioned a series of prints of John Terry’s original oil painting, Danger at Depth, to be sold to raise funds for the Vernon Monument Fund. John was a great supporter of Project Vernon, right up to his untimely death from cancer in 2013.

Special offer! For all members of Project Vernon participating or supporting Associations (MCDOA, AORNCFD, MWA, TCA) the Trustees have elected to offer a 15% discount on the purchase price of Limited Edition prints, as listed below. A further 10% of the publicised sale price will be donated to the Association of which the purchaser or recipient is a member, so do please let us know which one that is, when placing your order!
