Artist's Description

This shot of the old naval dockyard was taken at Holmen, Copenhagen in Denmark.

The frigate on the left of this image is the HDMS Peder Skram, named after a 16th Century Danish Admiral. It is now docked in Holmenfunctions as a privately owned museum having been saved from scrapping and fully restored. However, it was once a fully functioning part of the Danish navy and saw 25 years of service before being decommissioned in 1990. On 6 September 1982 it accidentally fired a harpoon missile which luckily hit a row of empty cottages (which burnt to the ground). No-one was hurt but since then it has had the nickname ‘Hovsa Missil’ or ‘Oops Missile’.

The other frigate you can see behind it, the P547, is the HDMS Sehested, named after Hannibal Sehested, a 17th-century Danish statesman. This is now also docked at Holmen in Copenhagen serving as a museum ship, part of the Royal Danish Naval Museum.
