It was indeed used for an annual, the 1972 issue.

what a difference, seeing original inkings scanned in like this,[at least, that's what it seems to be].

It was a text story with two images and it seems you have both as the second one does indeed have mirrors.

Brilliant that solves me a big puzzle ... and also rewrite's a small part of History concerning the artist .

I'd like to know who the artist is too. I may be going crazy but something about the faces of the two defenders says Barry Smith to me.

The artist is indeed Barry Smith .... and it's not recorded anywhere , which is strange .
