Atlantic weather rolls in over the coast as New Brunswick is reached on a flight from No.8 Operational Training Unit, Greenwood, Nova Scotia. The Unit is part of the Empire Air Training Scheme under which many personnel of the Royal Australian Air Force received flying training in Canada. Ralph Malcolm Warner was appointed Official War Artist in 1943, covering the activities of the RAAF in Canada, United States and the Bahamas. His first mission was in Papua New Guinea recording Australian operation against the Japanese. In 1945 Warner continued to work as a war artist recording civil and industrial war efforts and food production in areas of New South Wales and Victoria. After the war he returned to commercial art, designing posters, murals and postage stamps and illustrating books.
