Artist's Description

A Friend in Need

A ‘little friend’ – this time in the guise of P51 from 442 Canadian Squadron – rides herd on a lonely stricken B17. With a long way to make home and having lost the protection of the B17 formation the lone aircraft was like a beacon to marauding Luftwaffe fighters. The P51 had the endurance to stay with the B17 all the way back to base and these fighters well deserved the accolade of ‘little friends’ from a grateful B17 force.
