F for Freddie – Canada Bound

Incredible painting

A Very Unlikely Hero

From Clarence Simonsen

I have been involved with “F for Freddie” for most of my life, since 1980.

I take soft skins from WWII which I paint on. Last December I took skins from a RCAF Fleet Fawn built in 1930, and on one I painted the image of “F for Freddie” leaving England for Canada. This was donated to Richard de Boer last June and now you can use the image, if you wish.

This was painted to help raise funds for the restoration of the Calgary Mosquito.
