Walter Easton during World War II
A half-length portrait to left wearing the uniform and cap of the Peninsular and Orient Steam Navigation Company's Service. The sitter looks out of the picture space to meet the gaze of the viewer. He has a pipe in his mouth and is about to strike a match. Easton was awarded the B.E.M. in 1942 for his part in an action against the enemy while he was in the S.S.'Norkunda'. She was bombed and sunk during the North African landings on 14 November 1942, for which he was awarded the DSM in 1943. Walter Easton retired from P&O in 1954.
