Wireless operator Eddie Jones flew over 25 missions in Bomber Command in Halifax in World War 2.
Now in his 90s and living in a Liverpool care home, Eddie still recalls the conditions aboard his plane on missions over Germany and France.
Eddie's love of flying was only matched by his passion for painting and drawing. After he was forced to bail out of his Stricken Halifax over France in 1944, and captured by the Germans, he spent the remainder of the war in POW camps drawing life behind the barbed wire for allied prisoners.
The talented artist will now see his work go on display in Liverpool when the Mersey Pilots Association is granted the Freedom of the City. Good job he always used to hang on to his paintbrushes in the POW camps.
Eddie still sketches and paints at the care home today, and even took the time to draw Paul Crone.
