Little is known of the life of the rather private Pat Keely, a prolific and excellent designer of posters. He designed the World Scout Jamboree 4d stamp in 1957 and produced many posters for the British Government. In this excellent poster three aeroplanes are seen landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier; although somewhat stylised they are likely to be the Blackburn Skua.
