The upper drawing shows the barge of the Royal Naval College Portsmouth with Schetky and his students sailing past Nettleton, a village four miles south east of Ryde on the Isle of Wight, which would have been within easy reach of Portsmouth. The lower drawing is a view of Hardway which was on the Gosport side of Portsmouth Harbour.
