Band of Brothers

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

Taking nothing away from the movie, this was our own band of brothers, and our trusty steed, a Canso amphibian aircraft of the Royal Canadian Air Force, in which we criss-crossed the Canadian Arctic wilderness in the summer of 1955. This photo was taken by a person that I can’t remember, using my camera, on the dirt runway at Norman Wells, in the North-West Territories. I’m the second from the right, with the best looking beard :)
The camera was an Exakta Varex 35mm.SLR and probably using Ektachrome film at the time. Taken in 1955, scanned in 2004 with a Canoscan 4000dpi scanner.
Not expecting anyone would want to buy a copy, but here it is anyway. Nostalgia, if nothing else!
