Bob Barker has produced 'Sod This For A Game of Soldiers', a touching commemoration that depicts unexpected fraternity in the gruesome theatre of war, inspired by the famous football game between German and British soldiers on Christmas Day 1914.

With the deep sandbanks of the trenches in the foreground, torn barbed wire fencing and trees that have been destroyed by bombing, this poignant piece of artwork, painted in the nostalgic-style that this Yorkshire-born and bred artist is known and admired for, is a timely reminder of how humanity can transcend the horrors of war.

Fully framed as shown.
