In England, the hunt usually meets about eleven a.m. Huntsmen and followers assemble at an agreed meeting place. Often it is at a farm or estate where their owner has been bothered by foxes and has asked the hunt for assistance.

The hunt's earth stopper should have done his work overnight to assure that the foxes do not go to earth. The hunt may cover about thirty miles in the day, depending on the scent and findings.


Frank Wootton
The late Frank Wootton can be credited with giving aviation art a bold new direction, transforming the genre from illustration to fine art. A gifted young artist when WWII broke out, Wootton volunteered for the Royal Air Force, but was invited by the commander-in-chief of the Allied Air Forces to accept a special duty commission as official war artist to the R.A.F. and Royal Canadian Air Force. Thus, between 1939 and 1945, Wootton painted the conflict from the front lines of France to remote airstrips in Southeast Asia. His aerial scenes brilliantly recreated the threat of enemy fire, the split- second maneuvers of fighter planes and the triumph of victory. After the war, Wootton’s paintings gained international recognition. His works hang in major aviation museums throughout the world, and he has painted numerous state occasions involving the R.A.F. and the Royal Family. In 1983 some fifty of his paintings were exhibited at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Following his death, Wootton remains one the aviation’s most widely respected artists.
