This painting was sold through auction to help raise funds to allow the Dartford and Crayford Sea Cadets unit in Dartford to continue running.
The unit has been in existence since 1942 and since then it has trained thousands of cadets - many have gone on to join the Royal Navy. They get no financial help from Government towards their running costs as they are a registered charity. They may soon have to sink below the waves unless they get help now. br>
