Paul Nash was a British surrealist painter and war artist. Nash was among the most important landscape artists of the first half of the twentieth century. He played a key role in the development of Modernism in English art.

He studied at Slade, but was poor at figure drawing, so concentrated on landscape painting. The artworks he produced during World War One are among the most iconic images of the conflict.

Nash was also a fine book illustrator, and also designed stage scenery, fabrics and posters.

Royal Dutch Shell plc, commonly known as Shell, is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in the Netherlands and incorporated in the United Kingdom.

Created by the merger of Royal Dutch Petroleum and UK-based Shell Transport & Trading in 1907, in a move largely driven by the need to compete globally with Standard Oil. It is now the seventh largest company in the world as of 2016, in terms of revenue, and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors".

During the First World War, Shell was the main supplier of fuel to the British Expeditionary Force. It was also the sole supplier of aviation fuel and supplied 80 percent of the British Army's TNT. It also volunteered all of its shipping to the British Admiralty.
