Dear Gale, I don't know how you came by the inspiration for this painting, but I discovered that it was my grandfathers aircraft and he was the navigator
Thank you ever so much for it
Gale Cochran-Smith replied:
The paintings were commissioned by a friend of mine several years ago to commemorate the event. He lived in Holland at the time as a young boy and was very moved by the experience. The pieces are now on display in Terbregge, Holland at the City Hall.
Wonderful tribute and well done to boot!!
