The first look on founded Leicestr by “Foundation Lillian” and “Foundation Josephine”. The two radar-equipped tugs searched for several days, and found Leicester about 1300 miles off New York, with a 50 degree list to port. From book by Farley Mowat, "The Serpent’s Coil".

Good art. These would make very compelling book covers or film posters.

Marek, your work exhibits the sincerest form of marine art. It illustrates an event without being an 'illustration'.

Marek, as an Illustrator myself who is fond of Maritime Art, I am in admiration of your splendid work. You must have a great fund of stories to illustrate at your finger tips, oops brush tips which show a great capability and great interpretation of and understanding of your experiences.
regards
Edgar

If my memory serves me, I believe the maritime museum in Halifax has considerable detail of the Foundation Franklin. I seem to remember they had a very detailed model of her. However, whether they would be co-operative is another question. At the vary least they should know of any sources. In the meantime, I will check my fellow members of the Canadian Society of Marine Artists to see if they know of any sources.

Marek, if you type Foundation Franklin into Google, you will find quite a bit of information and pictures. There are pictures of several models of her, one of which was built from plans obtained from the Maritime Museum in Halifax. Amazon still has copies of Farleys book available also. Hope you find what you need, its a great story, likewise the Foundation Josie.

Cheers John L.

Marek,

Love it! Look back through the archive.... I also painted Josie, Lillian and Leicester but a daytime scene. Thanks to Farley Mowat for his excellent descriptive writing... a wonderful inspiration!

Some years ago... about 1995, I visited a sister ship of Lillian in St Lucia. Walking about the boat it was easy to imagine that it was Lillian. I saw Josie's sister Turmoil a few times back in the 70s. Never had an opportunity to visit a Bustller though.

Hello Stephen Thank You,

Farley documented stories first class. I contacted him few times by letters and he loved my Franklin creations, but he is an old man not any more visiting Nova Scotia. Very interesting is that he is writing by hand or on classical typewriter, not using a computer. But i respect him a lot. I never seen an original Bustller type but i worked on “like Bustller Tug” same design lines and most lay out
build 1959 “Koral” and “Jantar” from Polish Ship Salvage Co.(they are here in SN) and they are so great for ocean any conditions, loved them.(scraped both)

Has anyone ever painted Franklin coming into port with her last tow? Mowatt's description of her coming in half dead almost made me cry the first time I read it...

Unfortantly six of the crew of the Leicester were lost when she was abandoned 500 miles south west of Cape Race.
Later when she was discharging at Auckland in March 1950 serious structural weaknesses in her hull were discovered owing to the heavy weather she had encountered on the voyage out.
She entered the Calliope Dock in Auckland for repairs and additional strengthening of her hull and was one of the most intricate jobs ever taken out in Auckland. It was June 1950 before the work was complete.
Also of note was that the Leicester was the first supply ship to enter Singapore after the surrender by the Japanese and later took 1,400 Japanese prisoners back to Japan before being released back into commercial service.

Very tempting to me long time ago to paint the scene of return from last trip and still is. I will need scenery of entry to Halifax around pilot station in 1946, a very tempting.
