HMS Queen, a three decker ship of the line took part in the battle of Ushant and the battle of the Glorious 1st of June. This superb naval art print by Derek Gardner The Queen, is available from the naval art print company.


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 Battle of Trafalgar was fought on a calm, almost windless day, on 21st October 1805.  Nelsons revolutionary battle plan was to cut apart the larger Franco-Spanish fleet of Vice-Admiral Villeneuve by sailing in two single column divisions directly at right angles into the combined fleet and thus rendering almost half of the leading ships useless until the could turn and join the fight, which in such calm conditions could take hours.  The battle raged for five hours in which time not one British ship was lost, however, Nelson would tragically lose his life at the very moment of his triumph, a triumph which rendered the British Navy unchallenged in supremacy for over a century.  Here HMS Mars passes between the French ship Belleisle on her starboard and the French ship Fougeux on her port, firing a murderous hail of gunfire at both ships.  Also shown in the painting on the left hand side is the Spanish ship Monarco and the French ship Pluton.

 A splendid little war was how John Hay, ambassador to Britain, described the Spanish-American war of 1898. Though the war was small in scope it was large in consequences; it promoted the regeneration of the American Navy and the emergence of the United States as a major world power. Fought primarily at sea, the war created an American naval legend in its opening encounter between the pacific squadrons of Spain and the United States at Manila Bay on the 1st of May 1898. At sunrise Admiral Dewey, leading the American fleet in his flagship the USS Olympia, had caught the Spanish fleet, under Admiral Patricio Montojo, by surprise - still anchored off Sangley Point at Manila Bay in the Philippine Islands. Defeat for the Spanish was total and heralded the end of a once extensive Spanish empire in the Americas. Montojos flagship, Reina Cristina, is seen here under fire from the Olympia.

A veteran of the First World War, Malaya took part in the Battle of Jutland, receiving eight hits, and going on to serve throughout World War Two, surviving a torpedo off Cape Verde in 1941.

 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.
