A Tribute to the CREW Behind the Machines

$45.00

This inspirational tribute of appreciation to his “CREW” by P-40 Burma Banshee pilot Capt. Owen Allred, was entered into the Library Hall of Congress on November 27, 1944. “Capt.Allred is the first to insist that his ground crew share in whatever glory may come his way. Without their expert help in loading bombs and ammunition, and in servicing his plane, he couldn’t have done the job he did.” In the painting Allred’s mechanic Walter Contreras is standing in front of the aircraft.
Tragically, Allred’s plane crashed into Long Island Sound on a training flight just after midnight on August 24, 1947. Some piece of wreckage is down there, 36 feet below the surface of Long Island Sound, but could it be the wreck of Maj. Owen Allred's plane?
Bob Contreras, who is the son of Allred’s mechanic Walter (standing in front of the Burma Banshee in painting) has spent hundreds of hours scanning the waters of Long Island Sound with sonar devices from his 45-foot Formula boat on a quest to find the wreckage of Allred’s downed aircraft.

An Unusual Victory

$45.00

Roy painted “An Unusual Victory” as he felt it was an amazing aerial combat after he read the aircraft action report about it. On November 10, 1943, Ensign W.A. Harris, flying a SB2C-1 Helldiver from VB-17 on the USS Bunker Hill Aircraft Carrier encountered and destroyed a Aichi Type 99 “Val” carrier bomber which was trying to bomb the Bunker Hill. The SB2C-1 was called the Helldiver, and some called it “The Beast.” The bomber’s aerial victories were very rare, which makes this an “unusual victory.”

B26 Groupe Bretagne

$45.00

The "Groupe Bretagne" was formed in 1942 from the permanent detachment which was operating in Tchad, commanded by General Leclerc, against the Italian forces. It was then operating with six Lysander (close range reconnaissance), five Blenheim (Bombardment), two Potez 540 (Liaison), and three Glenn Martin Maryland (Long range reconnaissance and strafing).

In 1943, the group moved to Telergma where its personnel was trained on the B-26 Marauder. In 1944, it moved to Villacidro (Sardinia) and took part in the battle of Rome, flying about 600 missions over the northern part of Italy. In October 1944, after the successful allied landing in Provence, the group moved to Istres and, shortly after, to Lyon Bron. It took part in the liberation of Alsace and flew numerous missions over France and Germany until April 25, 1945, when it flew its last mission of the war.

Known for its precision bombing, its team spirit, and its audacity, the Groupe Bretagne received many distinctions and had the honor to lead the allied victory flight over Paris on June 18, 1945, forming a Lorraine Cross with its airplanes.

Signed in Paris, France by French B-26 pilots and crew including Pilot Henri Bourrassier, Louis-Jean Gioux, and Lucien Goubard. The original aircraft is on display at Omaha Beach Museum, Normandy, France.

Clawed by a Wildcat

$45.00

Lt. Charles Shields, VF-41, flying a Grumman F4F Wildcat from the aircraft carrier USS Ranger was in combat off the coast of North Africa during “Operation Torch” November 8, 1942. On that day, in the early morning, two D520s surprised Shields, however, the young pilot turned into the threat and dropped the lead French fighter. Hardly catching his breath, Shields spotted 3 more aircraft directly over the field. When he dove toward the trio, Shields found Vichy Hawks pursuing a lone Wildcat, piloted by Lt Chuck August. The 2 Americans turned the tables on the Vichy pilots, shooting both Curtis Hawk 75s fighters down.
After strafing the airfield with the last of his ammunition, Shields was bounced by 4 more Hawks and had to abandon his aircraft. As he hung helplessly from his chute, he was surprised, then angry, to see the Hawks lining up on him. They intended to shoot him while he hung unprotected in midair.
Desperate, Shields shot it out with his 45 pistol as the Vichy Hawks buzzed him, occasionally firing at the lone American. Neither side scored, and Shields descended to the ground and was captured. He was not alone. Several other Navy Wildcat pilots spent a few days as prisoners of war.

Howard’s Medal of Honor Day

$45.00

B.Gen. James H. Howard remembers his combat with a FW190 on the day that he received the Medal of Honor. Howard was a major at the time and from his book, he recalls the incident. “On that day, January 11, 1944, it was about ll:45 in the morning. I was gaining altitude and this 190 came cruising along beneath me. He pulled up into the sun when he spotted me. I gave him a squirt and I almost ran into his canopy, when he threw it off to get out of the cockpit. I saw him bail out.”
On January 11, 1944, Howard shot down 3 German fighters, damaged one and got one more as a probable. The five fighters were over NW Halberstadt Germany. From this busy combat day, Howard received our country’s highest combat award, The Medal of Honor.

Let It Be Hushed

$45.00

“Let It Be Hushed” is Roy’s tribute to Sgt. David Raikes and his heroic crew. We first heard about David’s story from a good friend who is presently in Indonesia. He received the information from his friend in Scotland, so this was like a snow ball effect! Our friend in Indonesia was very moved by the story and he thought that perhaps Roy could honor David and crew with a painting. We were so touched by the story, that our friend contacted David’s family in the UK with the help of the reporter who wrote the story and David’s family kindly gave us permission to use David’s beautiful poem “Let It Be Hushed.” They also worked with us on this project to honor David and crew.

Marianne

Noble Wingman

$45.00

This painting has a remarkable story. We met Tuskagee Airman Calvin Spann and his lovely wife Gwenelle through a mutual doctor who is treating Roy and Calvin for prostate cancer. Dr. Allen knew that Roy was an aviation artist and brought us together. Roy painted Calvin’s combat in “Noble Wingman.” On Calvin’s 90th birthday, we had a celebration at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Tx., and we presented Calvin and Gwenelle with the original painting as a special birthday present.

Tuskagee Airman 2nd Lt. Calvin Spann, flying a P-51 Mustang, participated in the longest bomber escort mission in WW2 from Ramitelli, Italy to Berlin, Germany on March 24, 1945. 2nd Lt. Spann was the wingman protecting his squadron leader, as he shot down a Me-262. Spann was part of the 332nd Fighter Group, and the l00th Fighter Squadron.

WWll – CBI – Mitsubishi Claude Fighter

Saburo Sakai entered combat in China in 1938 flying a Mitsubishi A5M4 “Claude” fighter. The 1938 Russian made 1-16s were faster and more maneuverable. Sakai’s Claude was behind the Chinese aircraft.

Silky Kitten Has a Tale

From Irene Grinnell: Roy surprised me with this B-17 painting because he knew that the B-17 Bomber was my favorite aircraft! He named the B-17 “Silky Kitten” as this was his nickname for me when we first met. So, I guess you could say this is Roy’s Alternative History and he used his artistic license! That being said, he painted in our friend Tuskagee Airman Calvin Spann above as our special escort! I also decided to make some of our friends special crew members on the “Silky Kitten” which was a lot of fun. Thanks Roy for my “Silky Kitten.”
