Home again

Miller Brittain (1912-1968)
Home again, Miller Brittain, Canadian War Museum, 19710261-1434

Brittain subtitled this drawing "Memories of 78 Squadron". This was the bomber squadron he had served in as a bomb aimer. The tense expression on the face of the airman on the right underlines the intense stress under which such bomber crewmen operated.
