This photograph was recently discovered in Gray’s School of Art.  It features Leo Clegg who led the Sculpture Department in Gray’s School of Art from around 1951.

Leo Clegg, seen on the left of the photograph, was a sculptor, sailor, decorated war

hero, lifeboat coxswain and art school lecturer.

In 1942 sub-lieutenant Clegg was one of the naval officers

who played a role in the daring raid on St Nazaire. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.
