Portée et contenu

A genre scene / marine scence depicting a Royal Navy rating facing the viewer with his hands in his pockets aboard the HMCS INCONSTANT. He is wearing a working rig including blue wide-legged, straight-cut trousers with a two-buttoned front and two front pleats. The legs are turned up at the bottom. He also wears a blue frock tucked into the trousers and a [round-cut] broad collar of a lighter blue, laid flat to the shoulders and decorated with one row of white tape. Under the broad collar is a red [scarf], the ends of which are joined at the front with a separate fastening, perhaps a lanyard. Under the frock is a white standing collar and a black tie. He also wears a black broad-brimmed hat with a low, flat crown with a narrow black ribbon tied around it. He wears sideburns that curve forward on the face and he carries a roll of cloth under his left arm. In the background of the work, the ship's rigging is passed through blocks and belayed to a set of belaying pins mounted onto the rail.
