DOVE OF PEACE - Acrylic Desk Block

P-51 Mustang 

This former Royal Australian Air Force P-51 Mustang has been restored and is being flown here by Mustang Flights of Wanaka.

The original "Dove of Peace" was flown by Lieutenant Colonel Glenn E. Duncan of the 353rd Fighter Group. This Group was attached to the U.S. 8th Air Force in the U.K., and flew fighter cover for the U.S. Bombers, plus strafing missions.

In July 1944 Lt.Col. Duncan was shot down while on a strafing mission. He managed to avoid capture and was helped by the Dutch underground. After liberation by Allied forces he resumed command of the 353rd Group in April 1945.

Acrylic desk block size: 50cm x 18cm (3cm deep)


Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
