Do you exhibit your photos anywhere? if not, if my opinion counts for anything I think you should.

My father Keith Savage was a signalman on the Loyal in 1944 and was on her when she was mined in the Adriatic on Oct 12th that year. A great painting! Thanks for displaying it.

My father Peter John Wilson was a stoker on HMS Loyal during the second world war serving in Malta and many of the incidents that I have seen in reports. And I know the surname Savage from my school days in Erith, Kent. I have some photo's of HMS Loyal as well. I paint in oil and would love to paint one of my pictures - one day. Love the picture.

My late father, Terrence Sutton-Mattocks was a Lieutenant RNVR on the Loyal. He would have been so proud of this painting. I wish he could have seen it.

Looks like we are building a bit of a crew list here. One of my late fathers' memories was when Tito came aboard once while the Loyal was operating in the Adriatic. Do any of your fathers have any such memories?
