A collection of beautiful First War watercolours that offer a fascinating glimpse into one man's life in the trenches has emerged for sale a century later.<br />
<br />
Talented artist Finlay Mackinnon, who exhibited multiple times at the prestigious Royal Academy, answered the call to sign up in 1914 and spent almost all of the First World War fighting in France.<br />
<br />
But in his free time on the front he did what he loved best, capturing life in the trenches and also the beauty of their bleak surroundings in his pictures.<br />

Bellmans Auctioneers, who are selling the album of artwork, know little about the provenance of the album, which is expected to fetch £4,000 at auction.
