2024 Cross & Cockade International Calendar
This is the 2024 Cross & Cockade Calendar published by The Great War Aviation Society located in England. The organization focuses on WWI aircraft and provides more than 50,000 pounds British Sterling toward the maintenance of the British Air Services Memorial at St-Omer, France, through annual calendar sales.
The calendar consists of 12 beautifully detailed artworks of WWI planes. Each painting has been done by a different artist. They include the well-known "kites" in their normal environment - flying, and on the ground. Only two paintings show them in a battle/combat situation. Other lesser well-known aircraft are also featured.
The renditions are superb and the subject descriptions are also good. Each painting will look great framed!
I will recommend this calendar to anyone interested in this conflict. I thought to frame the pictures after the year is over, but they are great as part of a set, and thus, I will keep them as they are – a set. My thanks to The Great War Aviation Society for the opportunity to review this calendar!
