A lovely pair of paintings for admirers of historical nautical transport. Both signed with monogram lower right, watercolours on artboard, one with gallery label from Collin Denny Ltd, Specialists in Marine Works of Art Chelsea Green, London. The other inscribed verso. Presented within quality silvered wood frames with ivory washline mounts.
RMS Medina was an ocean liner built by Caird and Company, Greenock, Scotland 1911, for the peninsular and oriental steam navigation company. She was a Royal Mail Ship intended for use on the London to Australia route and was the last of the ten ships in P&O’S M Class.

The RMS Medina was the last of ten ships ordered by the peninsular and oriental steam navigation company of the M Class. The order was placed with Caird and Company of Greenock, Scotland. She was 550ft long and 62ft wide with a depth of 34ft. She was to carry 670 passengers, 450 in First Class and 220 in second. She was powered by quadruple expansion steam engines which produced 1,400 horse power two her twin screws which moved through the water at a top speed of 19 Knots

During building it was decided that Medina would take King George V and Queen Mary to India fpr the Delhi Durbar. Medina was, therefore, initially commissioned into the Royal Navy at the Royal Yacht and her crew were mainly naval personnel. Medina was provided with an extra mast, necessary to maintain Royal flag etiquette and furnished with a white hull with bands of royal blue and gold and buff funnels. Various large rooms intended for public use were redecorated as Royal apartments.

Medina left Portsmouth for India November 1911, returning February 1912 where she returned to Caird and Co for refitting. She was then delivered to P&O in June 1912 where she had only two years of peacetime service before the First World War broke out, but remained with P&O during the war.

Today Medina’s wreck is upright with a 15 degree list to port. She is reasonably intact despite salvage of copper and passengers baggage from forward holds. Her stern is most damaged and she is sinking into the mud of the seabed. Her bulkheads are collapsing and her compartments are folding down.
