The story behind the painting...

It was during this Mediterranean patrol which began on an auspicious Friday 13th in February 1942 that HMS Thrasher experienced a lucky escape.  Sporting her  blue livery,  two unexploded bombs which got stuck in the submarine's casing. Lieutenant Roberts and Petty Officer Gould successfully disposed of them without any damage being sustained and Thrasher reached port safely.  Their bravery was later rewarded with Victoria Cross medals awarded to them both.
