“New Westminster City” is the central ship illustrated here as PQ 13 is attacked.
Two days later New Westminster City became another casualty of the battle to supply Russia and my client, now deceased, then aged 18, lost a leg.
An early Gordon Frickers marine painting reproduced here after inquiries from descendants.
The original painting was commissioned by and for one of the former crew of New Westminster City.
My client who fired at the attackers said he was “much to excited to hit anything“, was aboard “New Westminster City”, the ship illustrated here as PQ 13 is attacked by JU 88s.
The cruiser HMS Edinburgh is part of the background.
Years later the painting was reproduced as a book cover at the request of Captain Igor Kozyr (rtd) who was co authoring with an American, John L. Haynes a book called “Frozen Fury“, a personal account of convoy PQ13, the first convoy to Murmansk to feel the full fury of German attacks on that route (ISBN 978-1-4512-0156-7).
Igor Kozyr asked me if he could use my PQ 13 painting, an early example of my art, produced for and with an eye witness, as the cover for the Russian version of the book (ISBN 9-785904-180379).
The convoy is also the subject of book, “The Ship That Torpedoed Herself”, HMS Edinburgh.
I still have but have not written up fully his and my remarkable original notes and sketches.
