WW2 Royal Navy Swordfish Pilot John Moffat 'crossed the bar' on the 11th.
Best known for the Bismarck strikes, and now in his 90s John lived in a Care home in Perth for the last few years. I met him several times at the Fleet Air Arm Association meetings at Arbroath.

Actually it was painted in 1996 when we were both members of the FAAA, at Arbroath. I knew him from there
I gave the painting to George Milne sec. of The Russian Arctic Convoy Museum Project at Loch Ewe for his help and for putting us up when I had the exhibition there.
