In 2010, the Trustees of The Vernon Monument Fund commissioned a second oil painting by John R Terry FCSD, titled “Vernon Creek”. John sadly passed away in 2013. The original Vernon Creek painting was auctioned at the dinner in HMS victory in September 2014, raising over £22,000!
An accompanying series of Limited Edition Prints was produced and these are on sale to raise funds for the Vernon Monument Fund: apart from picture production costs, all sales proceeds go towards the monument’s construction.
For John Terry to have captured this scene so vividly is a significant tribute to all those personnel based in HMS Vernon during this period. The painting and the highly-collectible full colour prints will form an enduring part of Project Vernon’s aim to commemorate the heritage of HMS Vernon and the close-knit community that worked there for so many years.
