The twin-funnelled ship in the foreground appears to be a Clyde ferry in wartime grey paint, with troops crowding the fore-deck. There is also an aircraft carrier in the right distance, as yet unidentified but painted in dazzle-camouflage, which was invented and developed by Norman Wilkinson during the First World War.
