This painting was commissioned for the museum's "Operation Manna Commemoration" held on 22 July, 1995. The aircraft depicted is the No. 625 Squadron Lancaster flown by F/O Joe English, currently a resident of Nanton. Mr. English and his crew were aboard one of the lead aircraft on the opening day of the operation. They all agreed that it truly was, "The best raid of the War."
