Christmas Day 1941 dawned hot and muggy in Rangoon, Burma. Charles H. Older was one of 13 pilots of the AVG's 3rd Pursuit Squadron standing alert near their “shark-mouthed” Tomahawks on Mingaladon Airfield, north of Rangoon. In his first combat two days earlier, he had been credited with two Japanese bombers. At 11:30 the air raid sounded, and minutes later 13 Tomahawks, joined by 16 RAF Brewster Buffaloes, rose to meet the enemy. At 12:10 the Japanese formation was sighted, three waves of bombers (90 in all) and approximately 60 escorting fighters. George McMillan, R.T. Smith, and Robert P. 'Duke' Hedman attacked the left flank leading the 'V' of bombers while Chuck Older, Tommy Haywood and Ed Overend worked over the right flank. The other 7 took on the fighters. With Haywood on his right wing, Older attacked from below and to the right of the outboard 'V'. Opening fire at 200 yards, in an almost vertical climb, he held the trigger down until less than 100 yards, and then kicked over in a hammerhead to dive away. As the bombers turned east for home, Older downed a Nakajima Oscar for his third victory of the day. 24 Japanese planes fell to the AVG that day. Chuck Older became an Ace as did Duke Hedman, who shot down four bombers and a fighter. Other credited AVG victories included three for McMillan and Smith, two each for Parker DuPouy and Ed Overend, and one each for Bob Brouk and Ken Jernstedt. This particular Print is signed by Charles Older, Ken Jernstedt, R.T. Smith, 'Duke' Hedman and Parker DuPouy. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity and measures about 30”w x 24”h.
