Oil painting formerly described as 'The Coronation Procession at Battersea Bridge, June 1911'. This is one of four panel paintings hitherto mistakenly recorded as showing a royal river procession at the Coronation of King George V and Queen Mary on 22 June 1911, and as a view of the crowd on Chelsea Bridge, looking north. This has now been rectified from location of the Museum acquisition correspondence (see BHC0649) which shows all four panels (BHC0649–BHC0652) were a gift of the artist in 1936 and stated by him in his offer to be 'sketches of the Naval and Mercantile Pageant on the Thames after the Great War'; in short, the Peace Pageant of 1919 which was deliberately timed to mark the fifth anniversary of the war's outbreak (4 August).
