Using her simple cartoon-style, Toni Robin painted a black man wielding what appears to be a glistening razor. The origin of this motif is unknown and if anyone recalls the artwork and can throw some light on it, I would be most appreciative. The aircraft was initially assigned to the crew of Lt Kiel and survived until 22nd February 1945.
