Chessboard Confrontation reverse by Harry Turner

The reverse of the chessboard picture showing where it was painted. It went to Frank Dueden, a radar instructor at Cranwell. Thanks to his daughter, Anne Stratton, for the photos. The Chinese mushroom, I assume, was inspired by the 1940 Walt Disney film Fantasia, which made quite an impact on SF fans, as revealed by the enthusiastic review of the Rite of Spring sequence by another RAF customer, Arthur C. Clarke, in the final issue of Urania [pp 4&5], the journal of the Junior Astronomical Association, which was edited by my mother. P.H.T.
