Through this painting the Society honours four vital components of the successful air war against the Nazis. The lower section depicts aircraft at a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan base, focusing on the contribution of women to its operation. The top right image honours members of the airforce ground crews, here shown servicing a Halifax Bomber. In the top left, tribute is paid to Fighter Command, exemplified by the two Spitfires flown by the Warren Twins. The centre of the painting honours the aircrew of Bomber Command as a Lancaster piloted by Nanton native Glen Ransom is shown crossing the French coast. The painting was unveiled by former Ferry Command pilot Marie Wright of Edmonton on 27 July, 1996.
