A British flotilla commanded by Captain Fox, sights a German flotilla steaming southwards.

Accompanying the light cruiser Undaunted, which Captain Cecil Fox, who was in command of a flotilla, commanded were the destroyers Lance (Commander W de M Egerton) Lennox (Lieut Commander R Dane) Legion (Lieut-Commander Claud F Allsup) and Loyal (Lieut-Commander F Burges Watson) While steaming off the Dutch coast on October 17th 1914, the smoke of four vessels was seen to the north. Captain Fox at once ordered his vessels to clear for action and to give chase at full speed. On sighting them, the enemy turned and fled, and the British vessels dashed forward at over thirty miles an hour, washed from end to end by sea and spray.

On the 1st of August 1798, thirteen French ships of the line sat anchored in Aboukir Bay off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt, in support of Napoleon who was inland with his troops attempting to conquer the country.  As nighttime approached so did Lord Horatio Nelson and the British fleet.  Nelson had been hunting Napoleon at sea for months; at Aboukir Bay he had found the French fleet, trapped and unprepared for battle.  Nelsons audacious plan was to attack the French on their unprotected prot side, the plan had its risks; the whole of the British fleet could run aground in the shallows - but Nelson knew the waters too well.  The Battle of the Nile was one of the most decisive in the history of naval warfare.  By the end of the battle nearly all the French ships were sunk or captured.  The 124-gun flagship - and the pride of the French navy - LOrient, had exploded with such ferocity that it halted the battle for over ten minutes.  Napoleons ability to dominate the region had been crushed, whilst Nelson was to become a hero throughout the whole of Britain.

 To increase the strength of the US fleet in the Pacific during the critical early months of the war, USS Indiana went through the Panama Canal. On the 28th of November 1942 USS Indiana joined Rear Admiral Lee's aircraft carrier screening force. For the next 11 months, USS Indiana helped protect USS Enterprise and USS Saratoga, which had been supporting the US invasion on the Solomon Islands. On the 21st of October 1943 USS Indiana went to Pearl Harbor, but after only a couple of weeks left to support forces designated for the invasion of the Gilbert Islands. The battleship protected the carriers which supported the Marines during the bloody fight for Tarawa atoll. Then, in late January 1944, she bombarded Kwajalein for eight days prior to the Marshall Island landings on 1st February 1944. USS Indiana collided with the battleship USS Washington while refuelling destroyers, killing several men. Temporary repairs to her starboard side were made at Majuro and USS Indiana returned to Pearl Harbor on 13th February 1944 for additional repair work. The painting shows USS Indiana with one of the two carriers she protected.

HMS Glowworm, burning severely after receiving hits from the mighty Admiral Hipper, is depicted turning to begin her heroic sacrifice off the Norwegian coast on 8th April 1940. Hugely out-gunned and already crippled, Glowworms captain, Lieutenant-Commander Roope rammed his destroyer into the side of the Admiral Hipper, inflicting a 40 metre rip in its armour belt before drifting away and exploding. 38 British sailors were rescued from the sea and Roope was awarded a posthumous VC for his bravery, the first earned by the Royal Navy in WWII.

 A veteran of the Spanish Civil War, Lieutenant Commander Carlo Fecia Conte di Cossato was one of the most successful and formidable Italian submarine commanders of WWII.  In charge of the <i>Tazzoli</i> , he destroyed almost 18,000 tons of shipping on his first mission, steadily adding to this total as they prowled the Atlantic.  The <i>Tazzoli</i> is depicted as its tenacious crew retaliate with machine gun fire against a marauding Bristol Beaufort of 217 Sqn on 23rd May 1941, an encounter that left both protagonists with some damage.
