Hi,
I'm trying to track down a clear picture of the nose art of the plane my Grandpa flew in WW2. I've included the clearest picture I do have for reference
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

I should add; based out of Lisset Airforce base in Yorkshire England, RAF 158 Squadron
 
You are so lucky to have that one, such a pity it's a grainy image ☹️ Presuming the name is "Zombie" ?
Well, your post has just cost me a lot of money ! Just search for a book on RAF/RCAF nose art, I have wanted for a while and found it a half decent price !
Was going to suggest it as a possible place to look. However, I will have a look for you when it turns up 👍🤞 Just in case you want to splash out, I'll add a screen shot of it.

Thanks for that info. There are a billion images of the most famous 158 squadron plane, Friday the 13th! I inherited all my grandpa's military things when we lost him last summer. Lots of history. Here's a couple shots of his log book. The note on the Hamburg submarine yard run where he notes a 3" shell went through the nose!
