The Portsmouth hero died last year at the age of 100, and his funeral was held earlier this month. When The News went to interview him ahead of his birthday, we saw these brilliant watercolours hanging on his wall – which John kindly gave us permission to photograph and share with our readers. Here are a selection of his pictures. Photographs taken by Habibur Rahman.
