Identification

ship's figurehead

Detail from 'Man of War in a Harbour' showing the figurehead

As regards identification of the flagship from 'Man of War in a Harbour', this remains undetermined since her figurehead is depicted obliquely from behind and not in full frontal view as in the case of HMS Neptune in 'The Fishery'. Even so, the full length figurehead may yet provide the clue, as it appears to be wearing a kilt with Glengarry headgear, suggestive of Scottish links.
