A sailor returns in peace
A sailor is shown returning home to his family standing outside a cottage. He embraces his wife while a boy hugs father's right arm. A smaller girl on the far left holds his stick and her father's right hand, and carries his bundle. On the right a young girl holds a small child in her arms. In the background the domesticity of the setting is implied by the jug resting on the window-sill of the cottage on the right. The theme of a hero's return to home and hearth and war hero is emphasized by the sensibility and Englishness of the landscape setting.
