Ships are shown in the Straits of Dover, with Dover Castle in the background to the left and the mainland beyond. This is not an accurate portrayal of the Castle but was probably included by the artist to indicate the Channel fleet, with the North Foreland understood to be on the right. In the central foreground is a starboard-quarter view of a large man-of-war which may be the 'Britannia', flying the Royal Standard of Queen Anne, except that the white horse of Hanover appears to have been added inaccurately and later (after 1714) in the centre.
