A former soldier and war artist is to host an exhibition at Norwich Cathedral this month.

Major (retired) Robin Watt's work seeks to capture the atmosphere of warfare through his experiences in the first Gulf War.

During the early 1990s, he was a war artist with the 7th Armoured Brigade for Operation Desert Storm.

He produced artwork of soldiers living, training and fighting in the desert.

His work aims to give an insight into soldiering, as well as the nature of warfare.
