Major-General Christian Drouin, the commander of 1 Canadian Air Division / Canadian NORAD Region in Winnipeg, accepted three Battle of Britain paintings on behalf of the Royal Canadian Air Force from the Intrepid Society on Battle of Britain Sunday – September 18, 2016.
Colonel (retired) Gary Solar, president of the Intrepid Society, donated the paintings to mark the 76th commemoration of the Battle. Known as the Trilogy, the paintings are the rare work of Robert Taylor, better known as a Canadian wildlife photographer.
Major-General Drouin expressed gratitude to the Intrepid Society for the gift. He told Gary Solar and the audience in attendance that the paintings would join an already impressive collection of historical artifacts in the 1 Canadian Air Division / Canadian NORAD Region Headquarters atrium.
