John Wyllie, 1982
The title of this watercolour of a warship at sea gives the position, right in the middle of the North Sea on a level with Hull. It may have been one of the watercolours and drawings Wyllie exhibited in 1916 at a one man show at The Rembrandt Gallery (Dunthorne's) in London, called The Sure Shield of Britain.
