In Harm's Way
Superb oil painting by the late Robert Blackwell depicting HMS Kenya
on her was back from Malta during Operation Pedestal. The stick of bombs exploded so close that it blew a sizeable chunk out of the port outer propeller. The large bow wave was a result of being torpedoed by the Italian submarine Alagi
during the evening of 12 August 1942. The picture was commissioned for Percival Crabb's retirement in 1980.
