Delighted to work with Lieutenant General James Bashall CBE, who commissioned a military portrait sitting at his Headquarters in Aldershot. A tall and imposing man, Lieutenant General Bashall was a hero of the Iraq War. He commanded the 1st Mechanised Brigade in Basra, in 2007.
Bashall’s military career had also seen him commanding the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment (‘2 Para’) in Afghanistan. The General is one of the British Army’s most experienced combat commanders, justifiably proud of his service with the Parachute Regiment. I directed Bashall to pose side-on, elegantly displaying his paratrooper wings. I also opted for a low angle, to emphasise both pride and duty.
