Many years ago a painting of ” Sailor ” Malan, by a very well known British artist, John Mansbridge, was commisioned to paint ” Sailor ” in the cockpit of his Spitfire.
On completion is was hung for a number of years in the Art Gallery of South Africa House in Trafalgar Square. It was later passed onto his family and his daughter now has the painting of her father. I am grateful to Valerie for allowing us to take some photo’s of this maginficant work of art. Until the next time. John
