Lionel S. Bull was born in Coalville, Leicestershire and moved with
his parents at an early age to live in Longford, Coventry. He attended
Foxford School, and at the age of fourteen was awarded a scholarship
for two years to the Coventry Art School. After two years with the
Royal Engineers in North Africa, he continued his apprenticeship as an
electrician and became a Freeman of the City of Coventry.

Baginton Art Group.
