Re: The searchers

Thank you all for commenting through the past year. I've just had a quick count , and give or take mistakes in my maths. This is the 67th painting this year.

Re: The searchers

This was actually second last painting this year. I pasted the text in the wrong one, but the way this site works I could not edit it out. No matter there was only about 24 Hrs between them.

I remember one time while doing 'live firing' with the ships armament. Watching a Gull riding the ships slipstream alongside. 4.7" main and 40mm AA. didnt seem to bother it. Unfortunately it drifted too close to one of the multi barrel Boffors and turned into a red mist R.I.P. Mr Gull.
