L F Abbott

Born in 1760, Lemuel Francis Abbott was the son of a clergyman in Leicestershire. At the age of 14 he became the pupil of Frank Hayman, with whom he studied until he moved to London to continue painting portraits. He began exhibiting at the Academy in 1788 and continued to exhibit right through until 1800. Admiral Nelson sat for him several times and his half length portrait of Nelson hangs at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, together with a full length portrait of Admiral Sir Peter Parker. His portraits have been engraved by Valentine Green, Skelton and Walker. After his early successes, Abbott's reputation spread and he rapidly became overwhelmed with engagements. His overwork led to anxiety, insanity and, eventually, to his untimely death in 1803.

At 12.30pm on the 21st of October 1805, Admiral Lord Nelson on board his flagship, HMS Victory, breaks the line of the combined French and Spanish fleets.  The Victory is delivering a devastating stern rake to the 80 gun French ship Bucentaure, the flagship of the combined fleets, commanded by Vice-Admiral P. C. J. B. S. Villeneuve.  Starboard to the Victory is the 74 gun Redoutable.  This ship, the Victory and HMS Temeraire, seen left, became locked together soon after, the unequal exchange resulting in the Redoutable having the highest casualties during the entire battle.

 Landing craft head for Juno Beach in northern France on 6th June 1944 in support of the British landings at Sword Beach, packed with Royal Marine Commandos and the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division.  Aside from their flanking action for the offensive on Caen, their mission was to capture the airfield at Carpiquet, but they would first have to drive through the defenses of two battalions of the German 716th Infantry and elements of the 21st Panzer Division.

 Together with her sister, <i>Tirpitz</i>, the <i>Bismarck</i> was Germany's most modern and formidable warship of WWII.  Equipped with the very latest in rangefinder technology and festooned with defensive firepower, perhaps her most daunting weapons were the eight 15 inch guns, arranged in four turrets, that were to prove so effective against almost every other ship that she encountered, the most famous of these arguably being the Royal Navy's <i>HMS Hood</i>, sunk with huge loss of life in the Battle of the Denmark Strait in May 1941.  <i>Bismarck</i> is depicted here in company with <i>Prinz Eugen</i>.
