'HMS Anson' (1942) in the centre.

I also notice in the top left is the famous 'Gluckauf', built 1886 the very first modern bulk oil tanker with oil tanks out to her sides.

As well of course as the ill-fated 'HMS Victoria' to the left. I understand that her wreck still lies vertically on the Eastern Mediterranean seabed, as a result of the weight of her ram bow!

In addition to the revolutionary 'Turbinia', top left.

Fine shipbuilding tradition.

The scroll is actually just the border and I can place any other ships painting in the middle, in this case HMS KGV
