This drawing was donated by the artist to the War Artists' Advisory Committee (WAAC) scheme (No. LD 1231). Sir William Russell Flint obtained permission from the Admiralty to paint Devonport dockyard (Plymouth). He used this opportunity to produce work for his Royal Watercolour Society Diploma. Flint also produced pictures of bomb-damage in the dockyard. The sitter, Humfrey John Bradley Moore (1898–1985) had been a friend of the artist since the 1920s. Moore started his Royal Naval career during the First World War and eventually retired with the rank of Rear Admiral in the 1950s, having served in the Engineering branch of the service. He was a talented watercolourist as well and joined the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours after retiring from the Navy.
