The Queen by Derek Gardner.


The Queen by Derek Gardner.

The name Queen is one of the oldest in the Royal Navy and dates back to a Great Ship of the reign of Henry III (1216-1272) The ship shown here was a powerful three decker, launched on the Thames in 1769. When built she carried ninety guns, but like certain other Second Rates of her class, additional guns were mounted in the early 1780s and it was as a 98 that she fought at both the second Battle of Ushant in 1781 and at the Glorious 1st of June in 1794. At the First of June she was the flagship of Rear-Admiral Alan Gardner. In this action the ship was badly cut up in Lord Howes fleet, Captain John Hutt being among those killed. In the years following Trafalgar the need for large numbers of big three deckers with their heavy demands on manpower grew less and the Queen was taken in hand in 1811 and cut down to become a two-decker of 74 guns. She was finally broken up in 1821 at the age of 52.

 The view across Battleship Row, viewed from above Ford Island as the USS Nevada gallantly makes her break for the open sea, coming under heavy attack from Japanese A6M2s from the carrier Hiryu. The Nevada was eventually too badly damaged to continue and was beached to avoid blocking the harbour entrance. In the immediate foreground, the lightly damaged USS Tennessee is trapped inboard of USS West Virginia which has sunk at her moorings, leaking burning oil and hampering the daring operations to pluck trapped crew members from her decks, while just visible to the right is the stern of the USS Maryland and the capsized Oklahoma.

Swordfish of 825 Sqn led by Lt-Cdr Esmonde begin their heroic attack on the battlescruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen as they make their way up the English Channel from Brest during Operation Cerberus on 12th February 1942.  Although all the aircraft were lost and no significant damage was done to the German fleet, all the pilots were decorated for their bravery and Lt-Cdr Esmonde received the first Fleet Air Arm VC to be awarded, albeit posthumously.  The painting depicts the first wave of Swordfish attacking the Scharnhorst with Gneisenau taking avoiding action in the distance.  A German torpedo boat has turned to confront the attacking aircraft.
