HMS 'Montrose' Arriving at Reykjavik, Iceland
The British destroyer 'Montrose' is shown entering Reykjavik Harbour during the Second World War. She flies a blue and white flag at the main, together with the white ensign at her stern. The city of Reykjavik is visible on the left with snow-covered mountains towering up behind it, partly obscured by low cloud, and this limited visibility is repeated through the depiction of smoke billowing from the funnels of the ship. 'Montrose' was a fleet destroyer built in 1919 and sank in 1944. Although Iceland was a neutral territory during the Second World War, it was occupied by British forces in May 1940 in order to pre-empt a likely German invasion.
