David Marshall’s lifelong fascination with aircraft began when he was taken for a “joy flight” in 1934. The interest intensified over the war years, eventually leading to his being awarded RAF “Wings” in 1950.
In addition, his artistic talent earned him a prestigious university scholarship that resulted in a first-class honours degree in fine art.
He worked for many years as a creative director in the advertising industry then returned to painting. His aviation work can be found in the collections of Defence Force museums and in many private collections. In 2003 he co-authored the best-selling book featuring his paintings. He flew sailplanes and retired from flying, aged 75yrs old, with an International Gold Badge with one Diamond.
