Robert Taylor’s evocative painting, IN GALLANT COMPANY, depicts a nail-biting drama in the Solomons during the great struggle for air supremacy in 1943. Marine Corps F4Fwildcats and F4U Corsairs have fought a bitter air battle. Weary from the contest pilots head back for base. An F4F Wildcat has been raked across its fuselage by gunfire, taking out the radio and puncturing an oil pipe. The pilot is injured but in control, and thus far has been able to maintain speed. His C.O. and wingman have closed in to give support, but with land in sight the F4F has started to trail smoke. From here on in it is courage, determination, and luck that will bring this Marine pilot back to fight another day.
