Robert Taylor Secret Operation, HMS Sceptre

Submarine – HMS Sceptre

Submariners’ are a special breed of sailor. Their environment, operating deep beneath the surface of the waves, is both unnatural and dangerous, and demands men of cool courage and exceptional quality. Regardless of national flag under which they sail, this small elite ‘Silent Service’ is both feared and admired by all those who sail the seas.
Manned entirely by volunteers, British and American submarines saw action in all areas during the great conflict of 1939-1945, the crews fighting their solitary, stealthy, secret war with courage and nerves of steel.
Robert Taylor’s evocative painting captures the menacing beauty of a submarine on the surface: the S-Class HMS Sceptre slips her moorings in Scapa Flow, Scotland, and glides quietly into the North Sea to begin another top secret underwater mission.

Signed in pencil by the artist Robert Taylor and four highly decorated World War II Royal Navy ‘S’ class submarine Captains: Vice Admiral Sir Michael Lumby KCB OBE DSO DSC, Commander Edward Young DSO DSC* RNV(S)R, Vice Admiral Sir Ian McGeoch KBE CB DSO DSC,Vice Admiral Sir Ian McIntosh KBE CB DSO DSC.
