OIL PAINTING BY FAMED B-26 PATHFINDER PILOT OF HIS RAID
HAND PAINTED BY THE POW.
Pilot and Flight Commander, Charles Glenn Aldous! This magnificent and comprehensive items is a direct widow, next of kin purchase and a sad tale. I was doing a display in a retirement facility in 2009 when this woman tells me her late husband was a pilot and he died with no living children and she had nowhere to give the items to. I bought them at a generous price and here is one of the items in that lot, because the pilot was a B-26 Marauder Flight Commander and assigned to the rare unit of the 1st PATHFINDER SQUADRON (Provisional). The Squadron was a specially formed unit (DETACHED SERVICE) squadron that was equipped with radar to lead other flights of B-26 Marauders to targets in bad weather or night with zero visibility. First. I guarantee authenticity of every shred of item is this and every lot I sell as being 100% as advertised:

This 12 x 16 inch painting is no Rembrandt, but the pilot painted it for his daughter and son and signed the rear as: "Your Dad's B-26" No defects, well kept, part of a massive lot of original items from this one man's life over war torn Europe. No validation on the year he painted it, but he died in 62.

You can get no better authenticity than this, and what a famous unit. Part of the Normandy invasion.

This pilot stayed in the AAF and flew P-82 and then went to Korea. See his many, many other documented groupings. He died in 1962. Great man, great life of service.
