Ghost Raid Flight of the Missing
As I researched the Vickers Wellington bomber, I reflected upon the aircrews who did not return from their raids. This painting is a tribute to them, in particular, Pilot Officer Russell Munn Almas, RCAF, killed in action, Tuesday 21 November 1944, and Pilot Officer Ivor Malcolm Payne Morgan, RAF, killed in action, Saturday 17 April 1943. It was also painted in recognition of the service of Major Bill Randall, RCAF, who survived the war and returned to Canada where he continued to serve his country in countless ways, right up until his death in 2002.
