150 Signed Limited Edition giclee fine art prints available 15"x20" The original artwork on canvas was commissioned by the President of the Law Society for England and Wales and now resides on the wall of his office in London. 

 

The sword in the centre of the painting replaces the figure of Justitia who would typically hold the scales of justice in her left hand.  In the military law context and particularly in times of war or armed conflict it is the responsibility of the military lawyer on the ground (represented by the sword) to make decisions and give advice on the legal use of lethal and non-lethal force. 

 

The interpretation of the laws of armed conflict, rules of engagement, targeting directives and national laws must be weighed up and balanced against circumstances as they unfold on the ground whilst being mindful of tactical, strategic and political objectives.  Justice is therefore delivered in the field by being steadfastly rooted in that environment yet simultaneously retaining the ability to be sensitive to a multitude of factors presented by a fearsomely ambiguous operational dynamic and delivering time and time again pragmatic and apposite decisions and advice.

In the background is a Dam with a question of whether it is a river flowing from it or it has been breached?  In the Second World War under Operation Chastise the Dambusters breached the Mohne and Eder Dams.  Now, further to the Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocols, authorising such a target nowadays would be hard to justify.  

In the top left of the painting is the moon.  The moon is always associated with emotion and of course Field Justice has a direct affect on not only the civilian population but also those engaged as combatants.  So the moon watches over the scene as a reminder of the human impact of war.
