Further information

"The oil sketch for this was made during the War and I was nearly arrested by security wharf police for daring to make a drawing near ships in port in war time. I convinced them I was a loyal member of the R.A.A.F. on a day's leave. I had to show them what I had done as I prepared to leave".
