    Henry Kitson joined the Royal Navy in 1891 and saw action in two world wars, retiring in 1942. A talented artist, Kitson made paintings and drawings of the ships he served in as well as views of ports he visited and technical sketches. This summary of his career, with reproductions of his paintings and drawings, gives an insight into the life of a dedicated and ultimately high-ranking officer during a critical period in the history of the Senior Service.
