Nose Art Replica Paintings
This image was painted on two aircraft by Albert Edward "Muff" Mills. "Muff" joined the RCAF and became an airframe mechanic. He was posted to No. 428 Squadron RCAF and in February 1943 painted this nose art on a Wellington Bomber with the wording "C for Cuppa Tea". The image later appeared on a Halifax Bomber. In January 1945, "Muff" painted the same image on a No. 408 Squadron RCAF Lancaster with the wording "C for Cecil". Muff's brother was one of "C for Cecil's" aircrew. Clarence and "Muff" are close friends. In 1996, when Clarence heard that Muff was planning a visit to the Nanton museum, he encouraged him to paint this replica for the museum on skin from Lancaster KB-994 (EQ-K) that flew with No. 408 Squadron.
