"The Sussex, with a gaping raggad hollow where her bow has been blown off, lies high and dry on the wet sands between Boulogne and Le Portel. In front of the wreck a French soldier stands as sentinel; and in the shadow of the hull on the left a sad procession is bearing out the dead. To the left, a crowd of fisher fold, and in front, a single fisher girl with a basket." - Hardie/CarterSigned in ink, inscribed "II." 20th Century Subjects , Marine , Sailing, Clippers & Yachts
