HMS Resolution 09

HMS Resolution, part of the Revenge-class battleships, served in various roles from WWI to WWII.

In WWI, she avoided combat due to strategic shifts after the Battle of Jutland. During the interwar period, she operated in the Atlantic and Mediterranean Fleets, with notable missions in Turkey and the Black Sea. In WWII, she was initially assigned to the Channel Force and later to convoy escort duties in the North Atlantic.

She participated in the Battles of Narvik and was involved in actions at Mers-el-Kebir and Dakar. Damaged by a torpedo, she underwent repairs before joining the Eastern Fleet, where she escorted convoys in Africa.

Returning to Britain in 1943, she was decommissioned in 1948 and later scrapped.

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.
