Nose Art
Nose Art Replica Paintings







No. 432 Squadron Halifax NP-759 was marked "QO-C", given the name "Canada Kid" and appropriate artwork was painted on her nose. Each sortie was recorded by a candy sucker -an orange one for a night raid and a white one for a daylight raid. The aircraft completed 35 operations before being lost on a raid to Hannover on 5 January 1945. The pilot, F/Lt. James Sales, and two of his crew were killed when the aircraft crashed at Lichen Horst, Steinbke, Germany. The other four aboard "Canada Kid" survived to became Prisoners of War. As well as the "Canada Kid" replica nose art in the museum's collection, Clarence has painted another example that adorns the Canada House Pub in London, England.
