Naval Aviation News - June 1993 - Naval Space Command
COVERS - Front: "General Quarters," Albert K. Murray (U.S. Navy Combat Art Collection). Battle between sub and blimp. The tail gunner braces himself as he covers the U-boat's deck with his Browning automatic rifle to prevent manning of the German's deck gun while the blimp maneuvered for another bombing run. Commissioned a Ltjg. in March 1942, Murray painted a series on lighter-than-air crews. After the war, he became officer in charge of the Combat Art Section.
Back: "Ready Room," William F. Draper (U.S. Navy Combat Art Collection). Many combat artists did scenes of pilot briefings. This effort is one of the best and depicts Navy crews relaxing before a mission or flight planning.
