HMS Keith D06

HMS Keith, a B-class destroyer, was constructed for the Royal Navy around 1930. Initially serving in the Mediterranean Fleet, she was decommissioned in 1937 after repairs from a collision. Reactivated during the Spanish Civil War, she enforced the arms blockade. In World War II, Keith escorted convoys and conducted anti-submarine patrols before being sunk at Dunkirk by German aircraft.

Displacing 1,400 long tons at standard load, Keith had a length of 323 feet and a maximum speed of 35 knots. Armed with four 4.7-inch guns and two 40 mm AA guns, she also carried torpedoes and depth charges.

Ordered in 1929 and completed in 1931, Keith served in various flotillas before the war. During the war, she participated in the evacuation of Allied troops from Dunkirk before being attacked and sunk.

Keith’s wreck, surveyed in 2016 and 2019, showed significant degradation by 2023.

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.
