Barnett Freedman was one of the first artists to be commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee at the start of the Second World War. He was posted to France at the start of the war, staying on as long as possible before being evacuated. He was to return in 1944 to record the setting up of operational harbours in Normandy. In between, his interest was in recording operational methods and he was commissioned to work for the Admiralty, and specifically on HMS Repulse, in July 1941.
