Night action off Cape Matapan, Greece, 28 March 1941

Norman Wilkinson

A force of British Royal Navy ships, accompanied by several Royal Australian Navy ships, and under command of British Admiral Andrew Cunningham, intercepted and sank or severely damaged the ships of the Italian Royal Navy under Admiral Angelo Iachino. The three ships closest to the viewer are HMS 'Valiant' (1914), HMS 'Warspite' (1913) and HMS 'Barham' (1914). The latter is closest to the viewer in the middle of the picture, and is easily recognisable as she was the only one of this trio which did not undergo major reconstruction in the 1930s.

The two Italian cruisers are the 'Zara' and the 'Fiume'.
