Not sure you are interested

Not sure you are interested…

That’s what Clarence Simonsen wrote me yesterday when he sent me a 25-page story.

Hello Pierre,

Hope you had a enjoyable holiday.
This is the history of the Mexican Air Force in WWII, which has been setting in my basement. Last winter it was updated and three new paintings completed in Mexico.
Use if you wish.  I will send the info. for paintings only if you want. This will require some editing.


I said I was interested.

Hi Pierre,

This is the info. for the two paintings showing the first Mexican attack on a German U-boat. The other is the insignia of the Mexican 201st Fighter Squadron. In all three paintings I have incorporated the image of original Aztec art in the world famous museum in Mexico City. I have been there three times and it you ever get the chance, it is a must see. Just amazing displays. 
This is no use setting in my basement, so it might help out someone.

Now what about that 25-page story?
I have to read it and enjoy it first.

  1. I believe we neither know nor hear enough about countries such as Mexico and Brazil that assisted the Allies in the war against the Axis. Conversely, we don’t know enough about such countries as Argentina that tacitly supported the Axis.

  2. While surfing the net, my husband ran across this article and paintings and then showed them to me. It was a lovely surprise since Luis Noriega Medrano was my dad. I showed the U-129 painting to my mother, who is now 98 and lives in Mexico City, and she thought it was very powerful. Gracias!

    1. Clarence Simonsen is the one who did all this research and the paintings. I just used this blog to promote his wonderful talent.

  3. Warfare is a fascinating subject. Despite the dubious morality of using violence to achieve personal or political aims. It remains that conflict has been used to do just that throughout recorded history.

    Your article is very well done, a good read.
