That Wyllie chose this brave ship for one of his classic etchings is no surprise – he loved stories of heroism as did the artist’s admiring public: they took CHESTER and Boy Seaman Jack Cornwell VC to their hearts despite the disappointment that Jutland had not proved a conclusive victory at sea. The etching is featured in More Sea Fights of the Great War published by Cassell & Company in 1919.
