Flight Lieutenant George Frederick Beurling
Beurling eventually joined the RAF after trying to join the RCAF and Finnish Air Force. He became Canada's most famous fighter pilot, distinguishing himself in the defence of Malta. This design celebrates Beurling as a Fighter Ace with 31 destroyed to his name, but he was part of the RAF that was served by many men and women who were all heroes. Thanks to Andy Perkins of the 'Spitnuts' Facebook Group who provided the research for these designs.
