First Lieutenant Bill Blair and the Red Headed Woman on Morotai Island in the Halmaheras Group. Note the signature of Sergeant V.P. Allan. The artwork was painted on only one side of the ship. Blair believes that one of the mechanics in this picture is Sgt. V.P. Alan, creator of the Red Headed Woman and other squadron nose art.  (Photos provided by E.W. Blair)
