Art Mug – Bone China – The Old Warrior


The Old Warrior was my Dads truck soon after WW II. At the time of this painting, she was being used as a fuel and fencing truck. I learnt to drive this truck in 1970 when I was 8. The Old Warrior was made in the 1930’s in the UK, so in 1970 she was already around 40 years old, with her big double-clutch crash gearbox and a crank handle to start.  This painting was done in 1989 when the Old Warrior was in her late 50’s. I’ve loved her dearly since I was a boy, and I still do.

The Old Warrior at the time of this painting was still in service being used as a fencing and fuel truck. In her later years the poor old girl sat on disused and broken down in a shed until, wonderfully, she was purchased for restoration in around 2010. I’ve lost track of her since then, maybe one day we will meet again. I hope so.
