    Artist Identity. Any information please.

    This caricature has has been in our family from my earliest recollections (and obviously earlier).
    It depicts my Father, Wing Commander Warren E. Schrader who was CO of 616 Sqn flying Gloster Meteors from May 1945 to August 1945. I think he went on to command a Mustang Wing afterwards.

    The artwork is not dated but is rendered on the letterhead of RAF Station Acklington which may indicate it was created by someone serving in the RAF. The artist's name is featured prominently so I wondered if anyone had any further information on this individual. The work is quite accomplished and is a very good likeness of my father so perhaps this artist was known for similar work.

    Thanks in advance.
