It is thought the painting 'In Memoriam' refers to the Hull Triple Trawler Tragedy of 1968 in which three trawlers from Hull were lost off the coast of Iceland in a three week period during the worst Icelandic storms since 1925.

There was only one survivor and over sixty lives were lost.


Collection of Laurence Harbottle.
