Default Early BVWS artist?

After a long hiatus, I have just rejoined the BVWS. Seeing those old photos on the web site of early members got me thinking about many of them, and sadly, many are now passed. What was the name of the gentleman who did those lovely 'old style' pencil drawings that often adorned the front page of the Bulletin? He was a fine artist and a lovely, friendly man too as I recall.

That's the man yes, many thanks!

At Harpendon once, I was just standing there with a somewhat interesting 20s set and Norman approached me to ask if he could draw it. Of course I said yes, and I think he took it away to draw it - or did he just sketch it out in a quiet room at Harpendon? memories fade..

If anyone has any more anecdotes about Norman, his artist background etc, I'd love to hear.
