This is a large (for me) acrylic from some years ago for a friend who's Uncle flew Lancasters in WWII.
At their base a striking grey haired WAAF Officer was always there in the line up to wave them off on their perilous missions. One evening she couldn't make it and several crews got the chop , their worst ever loss. I believe the lady never missed another sortie . Memory may not serve me too well on that but that is the gist of it.The photograph is very poor quality but gives a fair impression of the painting
