About the Work

During World War 2, our family dog, a springer spaniel, served as a part-time good luck mascot for a nearby Royal Air Force station. Unbeknown to my parents, Freckles was flown frequently on air raids over Germany. At the end of the war, he was returned safe and sound. Luck had held out.
