Thank you for your recent email, which has been forwarded to me. The Royal Collection holds four paintings by Hal Bevan Petman, which I have listed below. They are all signed and dated 1961 and according to our records the first two were presented to Queen Elizabeth II by the Commander-in-Chief and all the ranks of the Pakistan Army in February 1961. The paintings hang at Sandringham. Thank you for giving me the death date of Bevan-Petman, I will update the database accordingly.

If you require any further information about the paintings, then please let me know.

Yours sincerely,
