vintage aviators

During the liberation of the Netherlands, British airman Fred Frazan took the time to bring joy to these Dutch children. Even in time of war, dressing as Santa Claus and delivering gifts may be all you need to put a smile on someone’s face.

This photo was taken at No. 122 Wing airfield at Volkel, Holland, 13 December 1944.

Merry Christmas and God bless!
