Large original watercolour & gouache by Scarborough-born artist Don Micklethwaite depicting the aircraft carrier H.M.S. Corunna

HMS Corunna (D97) was a Battle-class fleet destroyer of the Royal Navy, built by Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson Limited on the Tyne. She was launched on 29 May 1945 and commissioned on 6 June 1947.

In 1948, Corunna joined the 4th Destroyer Flotilla, part of the Home Fleet. In 1954, Corunna, with the rest of the Squadron, formerly Flotilla, deployed to the Mediterranean, remaining there until 1955. Corunna, with the rest of the Squadron, returned to the region in 1956. In 1959, Corunna accidentally collided with her sister-ship HMS Barrosa in the Atlantic.

Corunna subsequently began her conversion to a Radar Picket. The conversion included new AA weaponry, new radar, and the addition of the Sea Cat missile system. In 1962, Corunna joined the 7th Destroyer Squadron, based in the Mediterranean, and the following year joined the 21st Escort Squadron. In 1964, Corunna deployed, along with the rest of the Squadron, to the Far East, where she would remain until 1965. In 1967, she was placed in reserve and was put on the disposal list in 1972. In 1975, Corunna arrived at Blyth in Northumberland where she was subsequently broken up.

A noted maritime artist, Don Micklethwaite has exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists, Royal West of England Academy, Royal Society of Marine Artists, Guild of Railway Artists, and has works in private and corporate collections too numerous to mentions.

The frame measures approximately 35 x 21 inches
