The Cuneo Connection Booklet
By Howard Hughes
(published by Defence Postal & Courier Services 1997)
Terence Cuneo CVO OBE RGI (1.11.07-3.1.96) was a very special lifelong friend of the Defence Postal and Courier Services and this compact booklet is a compilation of the collection of paintings that hung with pride on the walls of the Officers’ Mess in Inglis Barracks Mill Hill, where Terence Cuneo always described as his “second home”.
Terence Cuneo is a respected name in the British Forces; there probably isn’t a Service mess in the country which doesn’t have at least one of his paintings displayed on the walls. This booklet contains high quality full colour images of eight of the collection of Cuneo paintings commissioned by PCS and housed at Mill Hill until relocation of BFPO to RAF Northolt in 2007. Each image is accompanied by a narrative giving the background and historical context to each image.
