Leslie Arthur Wilcox (British,1904-1982) Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret beingreceived by the Governor, Sir Hugh Foot, K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O.,O.B.E., as she landed from the Royal Yacht, Britannia atPort Royal, Jamaica, 19th February, 1955 signed 'L.A. Wilcox' (lower right) oil on canvas 61 x 91.4cm (24 x 36in). Footnote: LITERATURE: Frank G.G. Carr, Leslie A. Wilcox, R.I., R.S.M.A. ,(Leigh-on-Sea, 1977), p.22, no.44. One of the world's most instantly recognisable ships during thesecond half of the twentieth century, Her Majesty's yacht Britannia was ordered towards the end of King George VI'sreign even though her keel was not actually laid until after thepresent Queen had acceded to the throne. Built by John Brown on theClyde, she was launched by the Queen on 16th April 1953 andcompleted in the spring of 1954. Registered at 5,769 tons gross andmeasuring 412 feet in length with a 55 foot beam, her gearedturbine engines gave her a design speed of 21 knots although thiswas easily surpassed on her trials. In over forty years of service,her sleek profile never failed to catch the public attentionwherever she went across the world's oceans and the Queen wasvisibly moved when the yacht was decommissioned in 1997 after aprotracted political controversy over its running costs;fortunately, she is now preserved at Leith. In addition to the Queen herself, her husband and her children, Britannia was also frequently used by other members of thewider royal family for both official as well as private travel.Quite apart from Princess Margaret's visit to Jamaica picturedabove, the vessel was also employed to take her and the Earl ofSnowden on their Caribbean honeymoon in 1960.

Description:
Leslie Arthur Wilcox (1904-1981) The U.S. clipper ship Red Jacket in a cracking breeze signed 'L A Wilcox' (lower right) oil on canvas 30 x 40 in. (76.2 x 101.8 cm.) Provenance with The Parker Gallery, London. Lot Notes The legendary Red Jacket was designed by Samuel Pook and builtin George Thomas's yard at Rockland, Maine, in 1853 for the Bostonfirm of Seacomb & Taylor. Registered at 2,305 tons andmeasuring 251 feet in length with a 44 foot beam, she sported thefigurehead of an Indian warrior having been named after the notedSeneca chief Sagoyewatha famed for the red jacket which he alwayswore and which had been given to him by a British officer duringthe American War of Independence. Leaving New York on her maiden voyage on 11th January 1854, shereached Liverpool after an astonishing run of only 13 days, 1 hourand 25 minutes, dock to dock. This set a record which still standsfor the fastest eastbound Atlantic crossing by a fully-riggedsailing ship, an achievement made all the more remarkable given thesevere winter weather she encountered. Her reputation thus made,she was immediately chartered by the British-owned White Star Linefor a round trip to Australia. The first half of the voyage wasslow thanks to light winds and poor trades but her time of 19 daysfrom the Cape of Good Hope to Melbourne has never been bettered oreven equalled. Sailing from Melbourne on 3rd August 1854, shereturned home - via Cape Horn - in an exceptional 73 days and onlynarrowly missed another record run for her passengers. On arrivalat Liverpool, she was bought by Pilkington & Wilson, the ownersof the White Star fleet for £30,000, and thereafter continuedvoyaging to Australia and later Calcutta until 1868. From thenuntil about 1882, she worked the timber trade between Quebec andLondon, and eventually ended her days as a coal hulk in the CapeVerde Islands.
