The square-form embroidered wool picture depicts a sea scene with three submarines, one almost submerged, one in the centre named AI, and another in the background.




HMS A1

HMS A1 was the Royal Navy's first British-designed submarine, and the first to suffer fatal casualties.
She was the lead ship of the first British A-class submarines (a second, much different A-class appeared towards the end of the Second World War), and the only one to have a single bow torpedo tube. She was actually sunk twice: first in 1904 when she became the first submarine casualty, with the loss of all hands; however, she was recovered, but sank again in 1911, this time when she was unmanned. The wreck was discovered in 1989 and is now a protected wreck.
