Default HMS Hermes - Under Leaden Skies


HMS Hermes - Under Leaden Skies by Ivan Berryman
Released September 2012

Laid down as early as June 1944, HMS Hermes (R12) was not commissioned into the Royal Navy until 25th November 1959. This fine ship has enjoyed a long and varied career, perhaps its most notable role being that of flagship to the British Task Force that was sent to liberate the Falkland Islands following the Argentine invasion of 1982. She was decommissioned in 1984 and sold to the Indian Navy, whereupon she was renamed Viraat. Hermes is depicted here in stormy weather in the late 1970s before the Harrier 'ski jump' was added to her bow in readiness for the Falklands Campaign.

I consider this painting to be one one of the best that Berryman has done.He has managed to capture the "mood" of the gloomy scenario; and made the ship look very real in it's surroundings.
