Awhile ago I painted this portrait of Nancy Smith who was the Assistant Section Officer of the Royal Canadian Airforce (RCAF). She was from Calgary and one of only two women from the first contingent of the Women's Division to support the Allies in Britain during WWII. The RCAF Women's Division was non-combatant and worked in positions such wireless operators, drivers, mechanics, parachute riggers and photographers.
