    If you Google Robert Stewart Hyndman RCAF you will learn a lot about him.

    Oh wait. You did say service detail, disregard, another failed attempt at multi-tasking on my part.

    A detailed and illustrated article on Robert Stewart Hyndman appeared in the Journal of the Canadian Aviation Historical Society, Vol.22, No.1 (Spring 1984), detailing his entire RCAF career including training, instructing, operations, and work as a war artist. Copies of this issue might (note, MIGHT) still be available from the society. See http://www.cahs.ca/

    For an overview of his paintings, see http://collections.civilization.ca/p...ery.php?lang=0 using "Hyndman" as key word and "People" as area of search.

    You could have asked him yourself as he was online back in 2009:

    I pulled the file on a subsequent trip to Ottawa but as you know, Malta Memorial means no known grave.

    And by then it was too late:
