QE2 - Transatlantic Arrival by Gordon Bauwens.


QE2 - Transatlantic Arrival by Gordon Bauwens.

Few waterfronts in the world are as instantly recognisable and admired as New York. Cunard first used the port in 1847 and its vast liners became almost as much a part of the Citys image as its famous skyline thereafter. Transatlantic legends bearing immortal names such as Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth all graced this famous waterfront. And now, having already sailed well over four million miles since her own maiden arrival, QE2 still proudly bears the Cunard insignia into New York harbour, looking more majestic with each passing year. The magnificent liner is enjoying a traditional fireboat welcome while being met by Moran tugs. Manhattans twin towers and the distant Statue of Liberty shimmer in the early evening sun as overhead, Concorde banks to give her passengers a glimpse of the spectacular panorama below. It is apt that his fine portrait of the last Clyde-built Cunarder is by an artist whose charted her growth from steel skeleton into elegant ocean greyhound, culminating in her launch viewed from across the Clyde in 1967. He was received by QE2s captain when presenting the liner with a framed print for her 25th Anniversary in 1994, the original painting having been purchased by the Chairman of Cunard.

Known as the Silent Service, the men of the United States Submarine Force were the unsung heroes of the US Navy.  In World War Two, Submarine Force alone was responsible for sinking over fifty percent of Japanese Shipping - but the success came at a high price - one in five submarines did not survive the war.  Here USS Wahoo, arguably the most famous US Submarine of the war, is seen surveying a kill during her fifth war patrol in 1943.  USS Wahoo (SS-238)  would also fall victim, sunk by Japanese aircraft and Japanese submarine chasers 15 and 43 in Soya Strait, Japan on the 11th of October 1943.

 Arguably the most iconic moment in British naval history, <i>HMS Victory</i> is depicted just moments from firing her devastating opening salvo into the stern galleries of the French flagship </i>Bucentaure</i> at Trafalgar as Nelson's flagship enters the fray at approximately 12.30pm on October 21st 1805.  Beyond <i>Victory</i>, in the extreme distance through the gun smoke, Collingwood's <i>Royal Sovereign</i>is engaging the <i>Santa Ana</i>.  To the left of the painting, the French <i>Neptune</i> and Spanish <i>San Justo</i> can be seen with <i>Redoutable</i> immediately beyond <i>Victory</i>, trying vainly to close the gap.  <i>Victory</i>, already shot to pieces, is about to wreak her terrible revenge on the <i>Bucentaure</i> in the foreground where Vice-Admiral Villeneuve can be seen on the poop deck - wearing the green corduroy pantaloons.  Nelson was surely the nemesis of Villeneuve, who had been summarily humiliated some seven years earlier at the Battle of the Nile and Nelson's tactics would again win the day for His Majesty's navy, albeit at the tragic cost of Nelson himself.

 It is September 18th, 1805, off Plymouth. Led by the 74-gun HMS Thunderer, with HMS Ajax astern, HMS Victory, with Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson aboard, begins her journey south to join the rest of the British fleet off Cadiz where the combined French and Spanish fleets lay blockaded. This was the prelude to the Battle of Trafalgar and the last time Nelson would see his beloved England.

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.
