Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Frederick Doveton Sturdee Bt (1859-1925)
A half-length life sketch, with the sitter leaning on his right arm and looking to the left, his hands implied as clasped before him. Admiral Sturdee was the flag officer of the squadron sent to revenge the destruction of two British cruisers by Admiral von Spee off Coronel on the Chilean coast. His force succeeded in sinking the 'Scharnhorst' and 'Gneisenau' off the Falkland Islands on 8 December 1914.
