HMS Highland H44

HMS Highlander, initially named Jaguaribe and ordered by Brazil, was acquired by the Royal Navy in September 1939 during World War II. Commissioned in March 1940, she served in various capacities, including convoy escort and submarine hunting. After wartime service in the North Atlantic and West Africa, she was converted to an escort destroyer. Highlander participated in convoy battles and underwent several refits. Post-war, she was used as a target ship and ultimately scrapped in 1947.

Highlander, displacing 1,350 to 1,883 tons, was powered by Parsons turbines, reaching a top speed of 36 knots. Armed with four 4.7-inch guns and torpedoes, her armament was later augmented with anti-aircraft guns and radar systems. Modifications during the war included the replacement of rear torpedo tubes with anti-aircraft guns and the addition of depth charge stowage.

This edition print recorded on fine art stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.

The edition comes with a Sterling Silver anchor with a minimum millesimal fineness of 925 which is not pierced through the print but is available on request. The print is also available without the anchor on request.
