Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.


Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.

Featuring Queen Elizabeth 2 on her first homecoming to the river where she began her illustrious career, this painting captures the supreme elegance of the liner in the beautiful Firth of Clyde. As a backdrop, Hunters Quay and Dunoon nestle beneath the hazy blue hills of the Cowal peninsula, enjoying this brief reminder of when the river was one of Britains busiest shipping thoroughfares. In over 250 years of shipbuilding on the Clyde some 35,000 new vessels witnessed this lovely vista. The occasion which brought about QE2s only appearance on these waters for over 20 years was Cunards 150th Anniversary celebrations in 1990. Four years later the mighty QE2 again returned to the Clyde as part of her Silver Jubilee cruise programme. At the end of a memorable day, with the sun glistening off her giant hull and superstructure, the majestic Queen glided past those same blue hills.

 The pride of the British fleet, The Mighty Hood as she was known, was launched in 1918.  Weighing in at over 40,000 tons she was 860 feet long and had eight 15 inch guns, at her launch she was more than a match for any adversary.  Hood sailed the world in the inter-war years and was admired in every foreign port she visited, however with a lack of major refits in this time the second world war found the Hood unprepared for a major battle,  On the 24th of May 1941 the German battleship Bismarck found Hoods achilles heel within only a few salvos, namely her inadequate deck armour.  Hood exploded in a huge fireball from which only three sailors survived.  Here HMS Hood is seen with Force H in the Mediterranean.  Winston Churchill knew that the powerful French fleet at Mers-el-Kebir could fall into German hands at any time and that the threat had to be removed by any means.  On the 3rd of July 1940 the French fleet was duly dispatched by Force H.  The Strasbourg being the only French battleship able to make her escape.  Hodd is depicted opening fire at 17.55 hours with the battleships Resolution and the destroyer HMS Foxhound to her stern.
