HMS Loch Lomond K437

HMS Loch Lomond, a Loch-class frigate of the British Royal Navy, was named after Scotland’s Loch Lomond.  

During World War II, she served with the 17th Escort Group, patrolling waters around Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the English Channel, and later, she was designated for service in the East Indies. After various operations, including a planned involvement in “Operation Zipper” for the recapture of British Malaya, she returned to the UK in April 1946.

Recommissioned in September 1950, Loch Lomond served in the Mediterranean Fleet until October 1952. After undergoing modernization from 1953 to 1955, she returned to service, undertaking missions in the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, and East Coast of India Patrol.

Major refits in 1958 and 1959 preceded her recommissioning in September of the latter year.

In the 1960s, Loch Lomond continued her service, patrolling the Persian Gulf, participating in military operations during the Indonesia–Malaysia confrontation, and serving as a guard ship in the Maldives. She returned to the UK in December 1964 and was decommissioned in 1965, eventually being scrapped in 1968 after equipment stripping at Chatham.

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.
