    Default 'A welcome at the Inn'

    I love this evocative piece of art by Nicholas Trudgian !

    B-17 Flying Fortresses returning to their base in Suffolk following the Eighth Air Force 's massive aerial strike against enemy airfields during the Ardennes offensive, Christmas Eve 1944. A warm welcome awaits the crews at tonight's party at the Rose and Crown Inn.

    Nick, this is one of my favorites, too. I love the effects of the setting sun. A very thought provoking image.

    Fantastic art work!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The A-board outside the pub reads:

    'Christmas Eve party tonight USAAF welcome!'

    How cool!
