An acclaimed artist from Skelmorlie is playing his part in Glasgow University's centenary commemorations of the Royal Air Force.
Professor Dugald Cameron OBE has paid tribute to some of the university's former students who played a vital role in the foundation of the RAF on 1 April 1918. 
Lieutenant General Sir David Henderson, one of the University’s former students who learned to fly at 49, played a vital role.
Now the University is highlighting his story as part of an RAF centenary exhibition which features stunning paintings by Dugald, one of the UK’s leading aviation artists.
Professor Cameron’s art depicts a selection of representative aircraft flown by the RAF from 1918 to the present day. It is being display as part of the exhibition - Wings to War: Glasgow and the Centenary of the Royal Air Force - which opened to the public on 28 March, 2018 and runs til the 3 July 2018.
The exhibition is being held the University Chapel, which has played a key role in the University and Glasgow’s First World War centenary remembrance.
Professor Cameron OBE said: “Two great Glaswegians played significant roles in the creation of the RAF and then its continued existence. 
“Lt General Sir David Henderson, up to now the 'forgotten father' of the RAF, student at the University of Glasgow under Lord Kelvin and immediately after WW1, Sir (later Lord and 1st Viscount) William D Weir, honorary graduate of the University.
“This exhibition pays tribute to the founders and commemorates those who served, many of whom paid the supreme sacrifice, named on this Chapel.”
