Lovely painting of a subject I had not heard of.

I can't spot the Condor but I assume the Hurricat would ditch after the mission and be picked up by a launch???

Condor is just above the tanker bow, between the 1st and 2nd ships on the left. The catapulted a/c( Fairey Fulmars were also used), either flew ashore if in range, or as you say the would ditch close to a ship ( if they could find one ) unfortunately some didn't
