Robert Taylor’s stirring painting was inspired by the late Group Captain Peter Townsend’s vivid description of an event that happened to him whilst in command of 85 Squadron during the Battle of Britain.

Townsend stood guard over the crippled aircraft, and using hand-signals guided the young pilot safely back to their base at Debden.
Approaching the Columbia River for a cargo of wheat, The Glenesslin was sighted under full sail on a calm sea and in perfect visibility, standing in dangerously close to the Oregon coast. With no apparent effort to change course, the vessel crashed head-on into the rocks at the base of 1,600-foot-high Mt. Neah-Kah-Nie. A line was taken from the ship by people on shore and all hands left the ship safely, but none of them seemed able to satisfactorily explain the event.
