A depiction of an Atlantic convoy arriving at Falmouth, Cornwall, during 1942. This was an assignment for the War Artists' Advisory Committee during the Second World War and prominently features St Anthony's Lighthouse. Falmouth saw considerable activity in 1942–1943, since there was a naval base on Beacon Hill and the Battle of the Atlantic was under way. The lighthouse forms the focal point of the painting and establishes a strong vertical through the picture space.
